simply multiply twelve by three, giving you 36 grams in a full piece of candy, and then divide it by four, nine, and multiple nine by three: twenty seven (27). This is a somewhat roundabout way of doing it but this will work every time you do this kind of problem. (plus its the only way i know how to do it.)

Answer: 27
Stepbystep explanation:
12/(1/3)=s/(3/4)
cross multiply
3/4*12=1/3*s
9=1/3s
9*3/1=1/3s*3/1
27=s
