During the season, two apple trees and three pear trees produced a total of 126 pieces of fruit. Each apple tree produced the same number of apples, and each pear tree produced two more pieces of fruit than either apple tree. How many pieces of apples did each Ray's apple trees produce in one season? Complete the table below and answer in a complete sentence.

Then solve the equation.

**heya**, Thursday, March 20, 2008 at 8:50amI don't see a table, but let's solve.

2 apple trees = 2x

3 pear trees = 3 (x + 2) since they produced 2 more than the apple trees

So, 2x + 3(x+2) = 2x + 3x + 6 = 126

5x + 6 = 126

5x = 120

x = 24

Remember that x is the number of apples per tree and each pear tree will be 2 more than the apples.

Hope this helps!
