Pls help solve this problem.
It’s from P6 Essential book but I don’t understand how to get the portion for the cupcakes in the branch.

Mrs Johnson bought 5.4kg of flour. She used some of the flour to bake cupcakes and 2/5 of the remainder to bake cookies. She used 2/7 of the rest for pizza dough and the left over was stored in a container. Given that the amount of flour used to bake the cupcakes was twice the amount of flour left in the container, how much flour was in the container?
