In an office break room, there is a large bowl that contains exactly three flavors of candy: strawberry, banana, and orange. Earlier today, there were five strawberry candies for every four orange candies, and two strawberry candies for every three banana candies. Then George, a banana candy enthusiast, removed 22 banana candies from the bowl and absconded back to his desk. Now the ratio of strawberry candies to banana candies is five to two. How many candies were in the bowl before George took the banana candies?
