A fruit salad is made up of cantaloupe, strawberries, and bananas. If a salad weighing 65 ounces
contains three ounces of bananas for every ounce of strawberries and has the same number of
ounces of cantaloupe as strawberries, how many ounces of bananas are in the salad?
A) 13 ounces B) 39 ounces C) 26 ounces
D) 34 ounces

1. b = 3s
c = s

s + b + c = 65
s + 3s + s = 65
5s = 65
s = 13
b = 39
c = 13
