Fruit equation

Find how many peaches could be bought instead of buying one melon, one pear, one apple and two plums if
we know that:
• Melon and plum cost the same as three apples
• if we subtract the price of a pear from the price of peach, we get the price of plum
• Two peaches and one pear stand together just like a melon and an apple
• Apple and pear stand together just like plum and peach together.

Correct answer:

x =  4

Step-by-step explanation:

m+s=3 j bh=s 2 b+h=m+j j+h=s+b b=1  3jms=0 bhs=0 2b+hjm=0 bhj+s=0 b=1  h=58=0.625 j=34=0.75 m=158=1.875 s=38=0.375  x=m+h+j+2 s=1.875+0.625+0.75+2 0.375=4
