Answers

Hi there! The answer is 80 green apples. In a bag of apples, the ratio of red apples to green apples is 3:4, so we must first realise that there is a total of 7 parts. 3 of these parts constist if red apples. In other terms 3 / 7 equals 60. Now divide by 3 to find 1 / 7. Hence, 1 / 7 equals 60 / 3 = 20 apples. 4 of the total 7 parts consist of green apples, so we must multiply the preceding outcome by 4 to find our answer. 4 / 7 equals 20 × 4 = 80 apples. Therefore, there are 80 green apples in the bag. ~ Hope this helps you!
