1. 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
