2/3 of the pieces of Fruit in Lurene's basket are oranges. Of the fruit that are not oranges, 2/3 are apples, IF 2/2 of the apples are green and there are 6 pieces of fruit that are neither apples or oranges, how many more oranges than green apples are in Lurene's basket?

Is 2/2 a typo?

sorry it is a typo. The problem is restated

i think 18 more oranges
if 2/3 is orange then 1/3 is apple + other fruits ,in 1/3 there are 6 other fruits which are equals to green apples becz ratio is 2/2..>1/1 so 1/3part of fruits=12 then 2/3 is 24 wihch are oranges..hence 18 more oranges than green apples..
