    Answer: the vendor sold 40 apples and 20 oranges.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let x represent the number of apples that the fruit vendor sold.

    Let y represent the number of oranges that the fruit vendor sold.

    The fruit vendor sells 60 pieces of fruit that are either apples or oranges. It means that

    x + y = 60 – – – – – – – – – – -1

    There are 1.5 times as many apples as oranges. It means that

    x = 2y

    Substituting x = 2y into equation 1, it becomes

    2y + y = 60

    3y = 60

    y = 60/3

    y = 20

    x = 2y = 2 × 20

    x = 40
