1. A big box contains 3 times as many oranges as a small box. If 2 big boxes and 4 small boxes contain a total of 150 oranges, how many more oranges can a big box hold than a small box?

 

2. A small packet contains half as many apples as a big packet. If 3 big packets and 1 small packet contain a total of 140 apples, how many apples can a big packet hold?

1. Since 1 big box = 3 small boxes we can change it to 10 small boxes = 150. That means 1 small box hold 15. 15*3 = 45. 45-15 = 30 so your answer is 30

 

2. 1 small = 1/2 big. That means 7 small = 140. 140/7 = 20. So 1 small equals 20. Then 20*2 = 40 so the answer is 40
