Hi!

Can anyone help me with this problem sum? I cant seem to even understand the question, yet how to explain to my son.

There are 3 baskets of apples.
In Basket C, it contains 1/2 the number of apples in Basket B.
Find the number of apples in each Basket.

Hi,

Thank for the answer. But I wonder why you take 16 and divide by 2 units whereas its stated as 16 FEWER than Basket A.......that part I dont understand.

C is the repeated identity in the question.

A: 4u
C: 1u
B: 2u (C has half of

Since B has 16 less apples than A,
4u-2u=2u

2u--> 16 apples
1u--> 16/2 = 8

Thus,
A has 4 x 8 = 32 apples,
B has 16 apples,
and C has 8 apples.

Find the number of apples in each Basket.

(eg take u as 8, 4 x 8 = 32 )

B = 4u - 16
(eg [4 x 8 = 32 ] - 16 = 16

In Basket C, it contains 1/2 the number of apples in Basket B.
Basket C = (4u - 16) / 2
(eg ( [4 x 8 = 32 ] - 16 = 16 ) / 2 = 8

actually there are no right answer in numerical value , for "u" may varies as long the formula is apply, but an expression that the child must apply
