A group of 9 friends have a package of 40 W&W's chocolate candies to share. They each, one at a time, take a prime number of W&W's to eat. After that, the bag is empty. Exactly four of the friends took a number of W&W's that had previously been taken by someone else. Of the group, the number of people who took exactly 5 is twice the number of people who wear glasses.
Without any regard to the order in which they were taken, what individual quantities of W&W's were taken?
