Answer :
If we spend $15, we get 15 chocolates and 15 wrappers.
From these (15) wrappers we get 5 chocolates. ( 1 chocolate from 3 wrappers).
From these 5 chocolates again we get 5 wrappers. So, use 3 wrappers for getting 1 chocolate.
So, we again have 1 new wrapper and 2 wrappers from previous balance.
From 3 wrappers, we get 1 chocolate.
The final answer is 22 chocolates and no more wrappers left.
