I have a basket of fruit that contains only bananas, apples and oranges.  The basket contains 2 bananas, 6 red apples and 8 green apples.  If the total number of pieces of fruit is three times the number of apples in the basket, how many oranges are in the basket?

there are   6+8 = 14 apples

 

 

2  +  14   + Orange = 3 (14)

  16 + O = 42     subtract 16 from both sides to find # O
