Problem? Billy went trick-or-treating. He got lots of candy, but while he was heading home from behind a tree came a mean goblin took 1/2 of his candy and one piece. Later a ghoul took 1/2 of the remaining candy plus 2 pieces. Before he could run away a ghost took 1/2 of the candy that was left plus 3 pieces of candy. Now billy only has 5 pieces of candy left . How much did he have before the robbery?
