The cost of a mango was 50% more than the cost of an apple. Sue used 25% of her money to buy 7 apples and 2 mangoes. How many more mangoes could Sue buy with 80% of her remaining money?

M = 1.5 A      This is given....re arrange

M/1.5 = A

 

7 A + 2 M = 25       this  si given

7 ( M/1.5) + 2 M = 25

6 . 66667 M = 25

M = 3.75         

 

She has 75 % of her money left     80 % of this is   . 8 * 75 = 60

 

60 / 3.75 per mango = 16 mangoes
