In a carton, 1/3 of the fruits were apples and the rest were pears and

 

kiwis. After Lynn gave away 2/3 of the apples, there were 12 apples left.

 

There were 5 times as many pears as kiwis. 

(a) What fraction of the fruits did Lynn give away?

(b) How many pears were there in the carton?

The ratio of the fruits in a carton:  A : P : K = 3 : 5 : 1

 

A = 3x         P = 5x          K = x

 

Lynn gave 2/9 of the fruits.

 

There were 60 pears in a carton.
