Hey there math solvers! Just want to ask 1 math question.


5/8 of a basket of fruit are apples

and the rest are oranges. If there are

24 apples more than oranges, how many

oranges and apples are there altogether?

5/8 of the fruits are apples and the rest are oranges show that
Apples = 5 units
Oranges = 3 units

Since there are 24 MORE apples than oranges, 2 units = 24.
Apples - Oranges = 5 units - 3 units = 2 units
Therefore, 1 unit = 24/2 = 12

Since there are 8 units of fruits in TOTAL,
8 UNITS = 12 X 8 = 96 apples and oranges in total

Hope it helps! Big Grin
