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?

#1**+1 **

there are 6+8 = 14 apples

2 + 14 + Orange = 3 (14)

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