• Each guest ate 3 truffles, so the total number of truffles eaten is the number of guests times 3 or g*3.
Akshay bought 4 boxes of truffles, each box contained 6 truffles, so the total number of truffles bought is 4*6. Now, the total number of truffles eaten is the same as the total number of truffles bought, so 4*6 = g*3. Now you can figure out how many guests there are.
