At first a fruit stall, the number of oranges is the same as the number of apples at firs. 6 oranges and 14 apples were sold. As a result, the ratio of the number of oranges to the number of apples became 7 : 5. a) How many apples were left? b) How many fruits were there at first? 4 OrangeApple -6 -14 614 7u5u 7u+6 = 5u+14 7u6 5u14 2u = 8 1u = 4 (a) 5u = 5x4 = 20 (b) 5u+14 = 5x4 +14 = 34 34x2 = 68 Ans: a)20 apples b)68 fruits
