# What Percentage of the Total Amount did Daisy Spend on Apples?

Daisy purchased 6 mangoes, 10 oranges and 5 apples for a certain amount. With 40% less amount Anuj could purchase 3 mangoes, 5 oranges and 4 apples. What percentage of the total amount did Daisy spend on apples?

- 25%
- 28%
- 33.33%
- None of these

Answer: (3) 33.33%

Explanation:-

Let the total amount be X

According to question,

6M + 10R + 5A = X …………………….(1)

and 3M + 5R + 4A = 0.6X …………………(2)

Solve equation (1) and (2)

twice of equation (2) from equation(1)

6M + 10R + 8A = 1.2X ………………..(3)

6M + 10R + 5A = X ……………………..(4)

Subtract equation(4) from equation(3)

3A = 0.2X

and 5A = (5/3) x (0.2X) = X/3

spend by Daisy = X/3 x 100 = 33.33% on apples

Hence, 33.33% of the total amount spent on apples.
