# Four oranges sell for Nx and three mangoes sell... - WAEC Mathematics 2013 Question

Four oranges sell for Nx and three mangoes sell for Ny. Olu bought 24 oranges and 12 mangoes. How much did he pay in terms of x and y?

A

N94x + 6y)

B

N(6x + 4y)

C

N(24x + 12y)

D

N(12x + 24y)

**correct option:**b

4 oranges sell for Nx, 1 orange will sell for \(\frac{Nx}{4}\)

24 oranges will sell for: \(\frac{Nx}{4} \times 24\) = n6x

3 mangoes sell for Ny, 1 mango will sell for \(\frac{Ny}{3}\)

12 mangoes will sell for \(\frac{Ny}{3} \times 12\) = 4Ny

total money pay N6x + N4y = N(6x + 4y)

24 oranges will sell for: \(\frac{Nx}{4} \times 24\) = n6x

3 mangoes sell for Ny, 1 mango will sell for \(\frac{Ny}{3}\)

12 mangoes will sell for \(\frac{Ny}{3} \times 12\) = 4Ny

total money pay N6x + N4y = N(6x + 4y)
