She bought 3 types of fruit for a fruit salad. She paid twice as much for blueberries as for oranges, and $1.50 less for strawberries than for blueberries. If the total cost was 12.25 how much did she spend on each fruit?

c + 2c + (2c - 1.50)= 12.25

5c - 1.5 = 12.25 then 5c =13.75

c= 2.75

She spent $2.75 on oranges, 2(2.75) $5.50 on blueberries, and 5.50 -1.50= $4.00 on

strawberries.
