**drwls**, Sunday, June 14, 2009 at 8:35amAre you sure you don't mean that the unpeeled banana PLUS 7/8 oz. equals the weight of the unpeeled banana?

The problem does not make sense to me as stated. I assume that both bananas weighed the same before peeling. That is not made clear.

Let x be the banana's weight, in ounces.

7x/8 is the weight of the unpeeled banana.

Solve this equation:

7x/8 + 7/8 = x
