Therefore no of apples in that group is 18

Step-by-step explanation:

Given:

No. of apples = 36

No. of pears = 20

Also it is given that grocer arranges the  fruit into groups that have the same ratio of apples to pears as the whole collection of fruit.

first we find the ratio of apples and pears in whole collection which is given below

No. of apples/No. of pears  = 36/20 = 9/5

Now its a problem of ratio

It is given that no of pear in one group is 10

Let the  no of apples in that group be X

According to the question

No. of apples in whole collection/ No. of pear in whole collection = No. of apples in the group/ No. of pears in the group  ————-> A

9/5 =X/10

=> X = (9*10)/5 = 18

Therefore no of apples in that group is 18.
