A Crate of Mangoes Contains One Bruised Mango for Every 30 Mangoes in the Crate. If 3 out of Every 4 Bruised Mangoes are Considered Unsalable, and there are 12 Unsalable Mangoes in the Crate, then How Many Mangoes are there in the Crate?

What are you looking for? Let’s dig in quickly

Explanation

  • A crate of mangoes contains one bruised mango for every 30 mangoes.
  • If 3 out of every 4 bruised mangoes are considered unsalable.
  • and there are 12 unsalable mangoes in the crate

Let suppose the total mangoes in the crate is “y”. Then bruised mangoes in the crate will be y/30 (as given in the question: 1 bruised mango for every 30 mangoes).

Total unsaleable mangoes are given i.e. 12 so according to the question we can draw an equation;

3/4 x y/30 = 12

Through this equation we can easily determine total mangoes in the crate.

To Find

Total mangoes in the create = ?

Solution

Let suppose

Total mangoes = y

Bruised mangoes in the crate = y/30

Total unsaleable (given) = 12

3 out of every 4 bruised mangoes are unsaleable; so according to the question;

3/4 x y/30 = 12

y/40 = 12

y = 12 x 40

y = 480 mangoes answer

Conclusion

A crate of mangoes contains one bruised mango for every 30 mangoes in the crate. If 3 out of every 4 bruised mangoes are considered unsalable, and there are 12 unsalable mangoes in the crate, then there will be 480 mangoes in the crate.
