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
