Step-by-step explanation:

He have 42 oranges and 7 mangoes.

The correct answer is 7 mangoes and 42 oranges.

Step-by-step explanation:

Given:

Renaldo has six times as many oranges as mangoes. He has 49 pieces of fruit in all. Let r represent the number of oranges and m represent the number of mangoes.

Now to find the number of each fruit Renaldo have.

As, given:

Let $$r$$ represent the number of oranges and $$m$$ represent the number of mangoes.

So, as he has six times as many oranges as mangoes.

Thus,

$$r=6m$$     ……….( 1 )

Total number of fruits = 49.

According to question:

$$m+r=49$$

Substituting the value of $$r$$ from equation (1) we get:

$$m+6m=49$$

$$7m=49$$

Dividing both sides by 7 we get:

$$m=7.$$

Number of mangoes = 7.

Now, to get the number of oranges we put the value of $$m$$ in equation (1):

$$r=6m$$

$$r=6\times 7$$

$$r=42.$$

The number of oranges = 42.

Therefore, he have 42 oranges and 7 mangoes.

The correct answer is 7 mangoes and 42 oranges.
