Answer:

#112# cans per month were sold.

Explanation:

In word problems such as this there is often a lot of information given.

Summarise it a bit at a time and calculate what you can from what is given:

#332# boxes of cans. Each box had #24# cans.

#rarr# This means there were # 332 xx 24 = 7,968# cans in total.

There were green and black beans.

#4,272# cans had green beans. the rest were black beans.

#rarr# Therefore #7,968 - 4,272 = 3,696# had black beans.

The black beans were all sold over #33# months.

#rarr# each month #3.696 div 33 = 112# cans were sold.

In one calculation this would be:
#(332 xx 24 - 4272) div 33 = 112#
