So this is the problem:
A fruit stall owner had some apples and oranges. He sold an equal number of apples and oranges. He had 1/3 of the apples and 5/9 of the oranges left. What fraction of the fruits were sold?
2/3 of the apples is equal to 4/9 of the oranges. So...
2A/3 = 4O/9, and A is total apples and O is total oranges.
You want (2A/3 + 4O/9) / (A + O).
Look, that all of us can write O as 6A /4 or 3A/2.
So.... that means, the expression turns into (2A/3 + 4(3A/2)/9) / (A + 3A/2).
This simplifies to 8/15!!! Lol. The answer is 8/15.
