Let r=amount of money in dollars Mr. R has

and

x=cost of each orange

We will set up the equations

15x=r+90

10x=r-60

You can then solve for r and x by the method of elimination, substitution, or comparison.

Buying 5 more oranges costs an extra $150. Therefore they cost $30 each.

Buying ten oranges costs $300 and leaves him with $60. Therefore he started out with $360.
