4 units → 1460 fruits

1 unit → 1460 fruits ÷ 4

            = 365 (Pears sold)

 

3 units → 365 x 3

              = 1095 (Apples sold)

 

 

 

 

Sold

Left

At first

Apples

1095

1 unit

1 unit + 1095

Pears

365

1 unit + 292

1 unit + 657

 

1 unit + 1095 + 280 = (1 unit + 657) x 2

            1 unit + 1375 = 2 units + 1314

         2 units – 1 unit = 1375 – 1314

                         1 unit = 61

 

Fruits left in the end → 1 unit + 1 unit + 292

                                      = 2 units + 292

                                      = (2 x 61) + 292

                                      = 122 + 292

                                      = 414 (Ans)

At first

Pear -> u

Apple -> 2u – 280

 

Pear sold : Apple sold = 1 : 3

Total sold -> 1460

Pear sold -> ¼ × 1460 = 365

Apple sold -> ¾ × 1460 = 1095

 

After

Pear -> (u – 365)

Apple -> (2u – 280) – 1095 = (2u – 1375)

 

Given: There are now 292 more pears than apples

(2u – 1375) + 292 = (u – 365)

u = 1375 – 292 – 365 = 718

Number of fruits in the end -> (u – 365) + (2u – 1375) = 718 – 365 + 1436 – 1375 = 414
