You're the manager of the Candy Shop. Your candy jars are empty. Why? Because you've lost the price list! You have to use mathematical reasoning to find the price of each individual candy.
Step 1. Select a candy by touching it with your mouse. The piece you select and any other candy of that type (red, blue, striped, etc.) will be highlighted in yellow. You're going to determine the cost of a single piece of that candy.
Step 2. What is the cost?
Here's where you'll need to do a little math. Think of it as a puzzle. All the information you need is right there on the candy counter. You have to find the solution.
Step 3. Where does the candy belong?
Click the jar whose price is the same as the price of the candy you selected. If you are right, the candy will appear there. You may see that candy again in another puzzle but you will already know its price. Can you correctly place all 30 pieces of candy?
