    You can make an equation.

    Let x=oranges
    p=plums
    n=apples

    n= 3p + 5x

    So basically we know 1 Apple means Sam will pack 3 plums and 5 oranges

    To get 3n which means 3 apples we have to multiply the whole equation by 3

    (n= 3p + 5x) x3

    3n=9p+15x

    So Sam will also put 9 plums and 15 oranges if he puts 3 apples in the box
