Sometimes you can think of things instead of letters, for example...3a + 2a = ?If that was 3 apples plus 2 apples equals ... ? then you could do it, right?3 apples + 2 apples = 5 apples3a + 2a = 5aAnd the same with MINUS...10b - 7b = ?10 bananas - 7 bananas = 3 bananas10b - 7b = 3bOf course, you can't add bananas and apples, you have to count them separately, so...3a + 4b + 7a - 2b= 3 apples + 4 bananas + 7 apples - 2 banana= 10 apples + 2 bananas= 10a +2b(You can't add these two together)After that it gets more complicated...
2 bananas. you also have 3 apples
The question is incorrect; it says that the same products (3 apples + 2 bananas) cost both 54p AND 33p. Unless of course one lot are organic then it makes complete sense.
Think of 2 apples + 3 bananas + 4 apples.What can be added together?6 apples + 3 bananas6a+3b
total number of bananas : (is to) total number of applestherefore: 6:4Simplified is 3:2
20 Percent are bananas.
2 + 3 = 5. If you have 2 apples and add 3 more apples, you will have 5 apples.
If there were three bananas, and you've taken one banana, then there are two bananas left.

2 apples because if WE TAKE 2 apples then WE HAVE 3 apples.
You have 3 apples...
5 apples take away 3 apples leaves you with 2 apples5-3=2 If you have 5 apples and you take away 3, you have 3 apples. Its a play on words.
Let the apples be 'A' pence per lb Bananas cost: (A-30) pence per lb Cherries cost: (A+72) pence per lb Cost of 2 lb of apples = 2A Cost of 3 lb of bananas = 3(A-30) Cost of 2 lb of cherries = 2(A+72) But: 2A+3(A-30) = 2(A+72) So: 2A+3A-90 = 2A+144 => 3A = 234 => A = 78 Therefore cherries cost: 78+72 = 150 pence per lb
AnswerLast time I checked, you get one apple. :-) Unless this is somekind of trick question.Answerif you have the 3 apples to stat with, & you take 2 from them, you still have 3 apples. but if someone else has 3 apples, & you take 2, then you have 2 apples, & the other person only has 1.AnswerQuite simple, the answer is 2 apples. There is 3 apples on the table, you take 2 of em'. How many do you have? Well the 2 apples you took of course. Answer2 When YOU take 2 apples from three YOU have 2. Answeryou have apples..
You would have 2 apples 5 - 3 = 2
You took 2 apples from 3 apples. You now have 2 apples, and there is one left in the bag or wherever you took the 2 apples from.
You will have 3 apples, and there will be 2 apples left.
1 apple. No, 2 apples because you took 2.
2 apples, (this is the amount I took, therefore it is what I have)
5 APPLES Actually you'd have 3, if you have 3 apples and you grab 2 of them you still have 3 apples. You're just holding two of them
