    no idea what
    Singapore math - Math in Focus curriculum?
    is

    but here is how I would do this

    let the number of pears be x
    then the number of oranges is 3x , it said so
    let the number of apples be a

    a+x = 184
    a + 3x = 248
    subtract them
    2x = 64
    x = 32
    sub back into
    a+x=184
    a+32 = 184
    a = 152

    so we have
    152 apples
    32 pears and
    96 oranges
