A carton of oranges is to be shared among some family members. If each family member gets 5 oranges, there will be 3 oranges left in the carton. If every family member gets 7 oranges, there is a shortage of 7 oranges. How many members are there in this family? How many oranges are there in this carton?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

7x - 7 = 5x + 3       (x => number of family members)

 

x = 5

 

There are 5 family members and 28 oranges.
