Last week a fruit stall sold a number of apples, oranges and pears in the ratio of 4:7:9. The cost of an apple was $0.40, an orange was $0.55 and a pears was $0.50. If the amount collected from the sales of the pear was $76.50, what was the total sales amount for the 3 types of fruits?

a : o : p = 4 : 7 : 9

 

# of pears sold:           76.50/0.50 = 153

# of oranges sold:       (7*153)/9 = 119

# of apples sold:          (4*153)/9 = 68
