The solution:

(i)First we arrange the values like this

n x $1.60+$0.80= X which we assume to be the sum of money Mrs Tan had

(n+10) x $0.70+$0.10= X

From these values we can conclude that n x $1.60+$0.80=(n+10) x $0.70+$0.10

So we move the values around to get...

$0.90=$6.30

n=($6.30/$0.90) x 10

n=7

so we substitute the value of N to find out Mrs.Tan's sum of money

7 x $1.60+$0.80= $12

So if 1 mango costs $1.60...

She can buy...

$12/$1.6=7.5

≈7

She can buy 7 mangoes.

(ii) Amount of money= $12

Mrs.Tan had $12 to buy fruits

Nice but it would be better if the picture was a little clearer. Anyways, good job!

Nice explanation, simple and easy to understand but the picture is not very clear.
