Q:
# The ratio of bananas to grapes is 1:4. If there are 30 pieces of fruit.altogether, how many bananas are there

Accepted Solution

A:

Let the number of bananas be x.
According to the ratio, the number of grapes is 4x.
Together, there are 30 pieces of fruit:
x + 4x = 30
Simplifying:
5x = 30
Dividing both sides by 5:
x = 6
Therefore, there are 6 bananas.
To confirm:
Number of grapes = 4x = 4(6) = 24
Total number of fruits = 6 + 24 = 30
