A bag has 90 fruits in it. There are 9 times as many oranges as there are apples. The bag has __?__ apples in it.

 

I know the answer is 9 but I am having trouble figuring out how to do the equation which I believe is

A= apples

9A=oranges

90= A +(9A)

 

Please show me how to get to the answer

A = apples

oranges = 9A

A+9A=90

10A=90

A=apples = 9
