Given: A fruit seller has only mangoes, oranges and apples in the ratio 3:7:10. The number of oranges is more than the number of mangoes by a number that is a multiple of both 5 and 8.

Asked: What is the minimum number of fruits in his shop?

Let number of mangoes, oranges and apples be m, o and a respectively

m: o : a = 3: 7 : 10
o = m + 5*8 = m + 40 for minimum number of fruits 40 is minimum
o = 7/3 m = m + 40
4/3m = 40 => m = 30
o = 70
a = 100

Total number of fruits in his shop = 30 + 70 + 100 = 200

IMO C
