Also, I would solve the above problem as follows :NerdyMath wrote:hoddle wrote:Hi

Need help on the below.

24 x 6/10 = 14.4 papaya (sold)

24 x 4/10 = 9.6 papaya (left)

6/10 and 3/4 , the common denominator is 20

6/10= 12/20(papaya sold)

3/4= 15/20(apple sold)

Hence, 8/20 (papaya) and 5/20 (apple) will be left.

Also, don't forget about the 9.6 papaya earlier.

3u -> 30-9.6= 20.4

1u -> 20.4/3= 6.8

6.8 x 12 + 14.4 x $2.30 = $220.80

$0.40 x 15 = 6

$220.80+$6=$226.80

Solved by DS.

100u + 24 - (100u + 24) x 0.6 - 25u ------- 30

1000u + 240 - 600u - 144 - 250u ------- 300

150u ------- 204

1u ------- 204/150 = 1.36

100u ------- 136

(136 + 24) x 0.6 x 2.30 = 220.80

136 x 0.75 x 0.40 = 40.80

40.80 + 220.80 = 261.60

Ans : $261.60.
