there are 53 oranges in a box that contains a total of 77 pieces of fruit. how many oranges need to be added so that the box contains 84% oranges?

(1) Answers

Ok so do 100 divided by 77 to get about 1.3% per fruit. then do 1.3 times 53 to get the current percent of oranges which is about 69% then do 84% minus 69% to get the difference then divide by 1.3 to get about 11.5 oranges so you round to 12 oranges. So 12+53 to get 65 total oranges to equal 84% of the 77 fruit in the box.
