Please help me to solve this ratio problem sum?

Thanks in advance.

Mrs Imran bought a total of 100 fruits consisting of apples, mangoes and pears for $74.

Each apple cost 55cts and each par cost 15cts more than an apple.

The cost of each mango was $1.20

Is she bought an equal nos of apples and pears, how many pears did she buy?

Ans : 40 pears

Cost: 55u

Pears: u

Cost: 70u

Mangoes: 100-2u

Cost: 120(100 - 2u)

55u + 70u + 120(100 - 2u) = 7400
