I do not understand how you got 1.8! Can you please explain? I may learn from my mistakes if I got this wrong!^^

Okay, so there is the total of 9.3 kg!

 

3/4 is apples

1/4 is pears

 

instead of doing 9.3 x 3/4 then subrtacting it, we can do any easier way!

 

Just do PEARS x TOTAL KG

 

= 1/4 x 9.3

9.3/4 = 2.325

 

I hope this works! I'm not necessarily good at math as other people I know, but I try to help others!
