    There are 16 students total.
    1/4 (4 students)–> Yellow Costumes
    6 students–> Purple Costumes
    (?) students–> Orange Costumes.

    We know that one fourth of the students is 4 students by doing simple division.
    6 students are wearing purple costumes. 
    Add these together.
    4+6 = 10

    The remaining students are wearing orange costumes.
    There are 6 students remaining.
    Therefore, 6 students are wearing orange costumes.

    Answer: 6 Students

    4 wearing Yellow

    6 wearing purple

    6 wearing orange

    6 plus 4= 10 plus 6= 16

    hope this helps 🙂
