1/3 of the 6 dozen fruits in a fruit seller's cost are apples. If 1/4 of all the fruits are oranges & the rest are bananas, how many dozen bananas are there in the fruit seller cart?

1/3 of the 6 dozen fruits in a fruit seller's cost are apples. If 1/4 of all the fruits are oranges & the rest are bananas, how many dozen bananas are there in the fruit seller cart?     

 

So, rewording the problem,      1/3 • 6 dozen fruits  =  2.0 dozen fruits are apples  

                                                 1/4 • 6 dozen fruits  =  1.5 dozen fruits are oranges  

 

We see that the apples + the oranges  =  3.5 dozen fruits that are not bananas  

 

Therefore, the bananas are (6.0 dozen – 3.5 dozen)  =  2.5 dozen that are bananas
