    Answer:

    20

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Total: x

    Chocolate: 4/9 of x = 4x/9

    Not chocolate: total – chocolate

    x – 4x/9

    x(1 – 4/9)

    x(9-4)/9

    x(5/9)

    5x/9

    x = 36

    5x/9 = 5×36/9 = 5×4 = 20

    Answer:

    5/9x

    20 candies

    Step-by-step explanation:

    There are a total of x candies. We know that 4/9 of them are chocolates. Write this into a mathematical expression:

    – “of” always indicates multiplication. So, if we have 4/9 “of” all the candies, we have 4/9 * something

    That “something” is the total candies, of which there are x:

    4/9 * x

    We want how many candies are not chocolates, so we need to subtract this number (4/9 * x) from the total x:

    x – 4/9 * x = 5/9x

    Now, let’s plug 36 in for x:

    5/9 * 36 = 20 candies
