There is a bowl of fruit on the table. There are twice as many apples as pears and one more orange than apples. Eight pieces are either oranges or bananas. There are 3 bananas. How many pears are there in the bowl?


Thanks

    You can solve sequentially as follows:

    O=orange,B=banana,A=apple,P=pear
    "There are 3 bananas."
    B=3

    "Eight pieces are either oranges or bananas"
    O+B=8
    O=?

    "one more orange than apples"
    O-A=1
    A=?

    "twice as many apples as pears"
    A=2P
    P=?

    Since they say there is three bananas, and 5+3= 8, there are 5 oranges. 5-1=4, so there are 4 apples. 4 times 2 = 8 so there are 8 pears. Answer: 8 pears
