Yes!
14 M&Ms are red, 7 are yellow, 4 are green and 3 are blue.
Alina solves her 3rd puzzle and wins a prize.
I will be contacting all the winners by email.

RED=.50
YELLOW=.25
GREEN=.1429 [1/7=.1429]
RED+YELLOW+GREEN=.8929
BLUE=3=.1071 [1.00-.8929)

1.00/.1071=9.33
9.33*3=28 TOTAL M&Ms

.5000*28=14 RED
.2500*28=07 YELLOW
.1429*28=04 GREEN
.1071*28=03 BLUE
