Frankie the Squirrel can find one nut in 15 minutes and Glenn the Squirrel can find one nut in 12 minutes.

However, their friend Alex is eating their collection, and it takes Alex 20 minutes to eat each nut (and Alex eats all day long, and starts on yesterday's nuts).

How many extra nuts will they have at the end of a 24-hour day if they work together?
