Jane and Remus spend the same amount of money on some apples and pears. Jane bought 6 apples and 10 pears. Remus bought 14 apples and 5 pears. If Jane wanted to buy only apples, how many apples could she have brought with all her money?

6A + 10P  =  14A  +  5P

 

10P  - 5P  =  14A  - 6A

 

5P  =  8A    

 

P  = (8/5)A

 

So

 

6A  +  10P   =

 

6A  +  10  ( 8/5)A

 

6A  +  (80/ 5)A

 

6A  + 16A  =

 

22A   ⇒    she could have  bought 22 apples
