Why did they had "Monetary Pang of Guilt"?

Algebra Level 3

Three friends while returning from a movie stopped to eat at a restaurant. After dinner, they paid their bill and noticed a bowl of mints at the front counter. Sita took 1/3 of the mints but returned four because of monetary pang of guilt. Fatima then took 1/4 of what was left behind but returned three for similar reasons. Eswari then took half the remainder but threw two back into the bowl. The bowl had only 17 mints left after their raid was over. How many mints were originally in the bowl?
