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.

**PsyDAG**, Wednesday, August 22, 2007 at 1:23pmLet A = appples and B = oranges

1/2 A = half the number of apples

3B - 15 = fifteen less than thrice as much the number of oranges

Do you think you can work it out from there?

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
