# THREE FRUITS MATHS QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS THAT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND.

Fruit math’s questions are very simple but but tricky. Many people always get the wrong answers. If you always find it difficult to solve these types of tricky math’s questions, then this article is worth reading to the end.

Since many people have  wrong answers on our  Facebook page, I decided to write this article to teach you some little tricks in solving fruit math’s questions. I know the main problem many people face in solving this type is because they are not seeing the usual common "X "

and "Y" we use to look for. Therefore, the usual X and Y we use to look for in primary and secondary school could still stand for anything say fruits. I in person use to ask myself that when shall we ever see "X " or "Y"? Well as these is just to refresh your brain to make you think smartly.

That said, now let’s get to some examples of fruit math’s questions and solutions. Most fruits maths questions from a topic in maths: Simultaneous Equationts. So, if you master this topic well then fruits maths questions will be simple for you to solve. You must have heard about BODMAS or PEMDAS but may not know how to use it well in basic mathematics which I will apply as I solve bellow

Question one:

If vine +vine +vine +vine =1000,
Melon +vine =vine =500 and
2bananas +melon + vine = 500. Then
Vine + Banana – Vine times Melon =?
To solve this fruit math question, you must first fine the value of each of the fruits. Since the questions is given in equation form, it is easier to solve for each of the variables. So, let V = VINE, B= Banana and M = Melon.
V + V + V + V = 1000. Implies,
4V = 1000
V = 1000 ÷ 4
V = 250. This means Vines equal to 250.

Second equation: M + V + V = 500
M + 500 = 500 since V = 250
M = 0. This means melon equal 0

Third equation: 2B + 0 + 250 = 500
2B = 250
B = 125. This means banana equal 125. If I substitute these values in the fourth equation, it will be as thus.
250 + 125 – 250 × 0 =?
250 + 125- 0 =? Remember using BODMAS, I multiply before adding.
375 =? this is the correct answer to this question. Now let’s look and example two.

Example two:

If Apple + Apple + Apple =30
Apple + 4bananas + 4bananas = 18,
4bananas - 2(1/2) coconut = 2,
Then
1/2 coconut + Apple + 2bananas = ?

Solutions.
3Apple = 30
Implies Apple = 30÷3,
Apple = 10.
Second equation
10 +8bananas = 18.
Implies 8bananas = 18 - 10
8bananas 8
Banana = 8/8
Banana = 1.
Equation three
4 - 2halvescoconuts  = 2
4 - 2halves coconut = 2
- 2halves coconut = 2 - 4
- 2halves coconut = - 2
Coconut = 1 ( What have you learn here?).
Now half coconut + Apple + 2 bananas = ? . Substituting the values of each fruit will give
1/2 + 10 + 2 = ?
Implies 12.5 = ? .
Hope you learn Some tricks today. Now try this as an exercise
