Can anyone help me with this question? The answer is 120 but I don't understand as the method was not clear.

Mr Jamal has 4 boxes of apples labelled A, B, C, D at his fruit stall. Box A contained 5/6 of the total number of apples in boxes B, C and D. Box B contains 1/5 of the total number of apples in boxes C and D. Box C contains 3/2 (1 1/2) times the number of apples in box D. Box C contains 48 more apples than box B.

a) How many apples are there in box A?

A=5/6(B+c+d)
b=1/5(c+d)
c=3/2d
c-b=48

c=72,
b=24
a=120
