A) How much money did Mr.Santiago earn if he sold the oranges 5 for $1.20
B) If he made $24.15 by selling the rest of the oranges,how much did he charge for each orange?

    500 oranges total
    sold .65*500 = 325, leaving 175
    8% of 175 = 14 went bad

    sold 325 * 1.20/5 = $78.00

    (175-14)p = 24.15
    p = $.15 each
