1-125.

Maria was putting together party favors (small bags of treats for each person) for her niece’s birthday party.  In each bag, she put three small chocolate candies, and four hard candies.  If Maria had $12$ bags, how many candies did she use in all?  How could you represent this with a number expression?

First, try to think of how many pieces of candy are in one whole bag. This may make finding the number of candies Maria used in all easier.

There are $84$ candies used in all. What does your number expression look like?
