Ann sells apples and Beth sells oranges. Today, half the number of apples than Ann sold was fifteen less than thrice as much the number of oranges that Beth sold.

Can someone explain to me what this means and how to do it pretty please? I really need help on this one.

Can anyone help me on this problem please?

I don't see but one equation but a problem with two unknowns. Actually, there is no problem (question), just a statement. What is the question?

Ann sells apples and Beth sells oranges. Today, half the number of apples than Ann sold was fifteen less than thrice as much the number of oranges that Beth sold.

I just want it to know; how do I convert it into an algebraic expression or equation? Is confusing and I don't get it.
