230

#### Explanation:

Each bag contains 12 bolts, so the total number of bolts is 12 times the number of bags.

Let's say we have

#12 xx b = 2760#

If we divide both sides of this equation by 12, we solve for

#(12 xx b)/color(red)12 = 2760/color(red)12#

#(cancel12 xx b)/cancelcolor(red)12 = 230#

#b = 230#

So the box contained 230 bags.
