Contents

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The key is finding one fruit that can be used as a reference for determining how much the other fruits weigh.

    For starters, try figuring out how many strawberries equal the weight of one apple.

Hint Two
    Looking at the scales in the first example, you'll see that one orange equals two strawberries and one lemon.

    With this in mind, try replacing the orange in the third example with two strawberries and one lemon.

    This should simplify things a bit.

Hint Three
    Did Hint 2 help you figure out that one apple equals the weight of five strawberries? With this in mind, take a look at the scales in example 2.

    Replace the two oranges with the number of lemons and strawberries that equal the same weight, and then do the same for the apples with strawberries. This should help you figure out how many strawberries equal the weight of one lemon.

Super Hint
    Did Hint 3 help you figure out that one lemon equals two strawberries?

    With that in mind, take a look at the scales in example 1. If you replace the two strawberries with one lemon, it should become clear how many lemons equal the weight of one orange.
