Jelly Jars

Solution

Red berry  4
Orange apricot  1
Green mint  2
Purple grape  3

There are 10 jars of jelly filled in all.

Explanation

12 jelly jars
  1. 2 red berry jars + 2 more jars = 4 red berry jars
    2 + 2 = 4

    2 red jars + 2 more red jars
  2. There is 1 jar of orange apricot jelly.
  3. To find the number of jars of green mint jelly, think
    1 apricot + 1 more = 2.
    1 + 1 = 2

    1 orange jar + 1 clear jar = 2
  4. To find the number of jars of grape jelly, think
    2 green mint + 1 more = 3.

    2 green jars + 1 clear jar = 3
    2 + 1 = 3
