Answer:its B

Step-by-step explanation:Answer:He have42oranges and7mangoes.The correct answer is7 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 [tex]r[/tex] represent the number of oranges and [tex]m[/tex] represent the number of mangoes.

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

Thus,[tex]r=6m[/tex] ……….( 1 )

Total number of fruits = 49.

According to question:[tex]m+r=49[/tex]

Substituting the value of[tex]r[/tex]from equation (1) we get:[tex]m+6m=49[/tex]

[tex]7m=49[/tex]

Dividing both sides by 7 we get:[tex]m=7.[/tex]

Number of mangoes = 7.Now, to get the number of oranges we put the value of[tex]m[/tex]in equation (1):[tex]r=6m[/tex]

[tex]r=6\times 7[/tex]

[tex]r=42.[/tex]

The number of oranges = 42.Therefore,

he have 42 oranges and 7 mangoes.The correct answer is 7 mangoes and 42 oranges.
