In a school, there are 4 more students in Class A than in

Class B, and 4 more students in Class B than in Class C. As

a reward for good behavior, a teacher decides to give out some sweets. Every student in class C got 5 more sweets

than every student in Class B, and every student in Class B got 3 more sweets than every student in Class A. As it turns

out, Class A got 10 more sweets than Class B, and Class B

got 14 more sweets than Class C. How many sweets were

given out in all?
