Then, calculate the answer from your model, and explain your reasoning. a. How many apples are in the bag if there are a total of 9 pieces of fruti? b. How many apples are in the bag if there are a total of 15 pieces of fruit? c. How many pieces of fruit are there if there are 8 apples in the bag?

Solution

Verifieda) We are given the ratio of 1 pear for every 2 apples. Each group then has 1 + 2 = 3 pieces of fruit. To have 9 pieces in total, we then need 3 groups since $3\times3=9$. Draw three groups of 1 pear and 2 apples. Counting the number of apples gives 6 so there are 6 apples if there are 9 total pieces of fruit.
