Write an equation to solve the following problem.

During the season, two apple trees and three pear trees produced a total of 126 pieces of fruit. Each apple tree produced the same number of apples, and each pear tree produced two more pieces of fruit than either apple tree. How many pieces of apples did each Ray's apple trees produce in one season? Complete the table below and answer in a complete sentence.

Then solve the equation.

• Pre-Algebra -

There is no "table below".
Let x be the number of apples per apple tree and y be the number of pears per pear tree.
y = x + 2
2x +3y = 126

2x + 3(x+2) = 126
5x = 120
x = 24
y = 26
