## 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 â€śyâ€ť. 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.
