OG 2017 New Question

Dear AbdurRakib,
I'm happy to respond. This kind of word problem intimidates many people, but the actual calculation here is quite straightforward.

A fraction is a part over a whole. The whole is 350 bushels.

Of this set of x special trees, special for some unknown reason, each tree produced 10 bushels. That's 10x bushels from the lot of them. That's the part.

fraction = \(\frac{10x}{350}\) = \(\frac{x}{35}\)

Answer = (A)

Does this make sense?
Mike :-)

Total yield by x trees = 10x
So, fraction of the harvest yield from these x trees = 10x/350 = x/35

OG 2017 New Question


What fraction of the TOTAL harvest 'x' trees yield. That means harvest from x trees/total harvest

harvest from x trees= 10x (each of x trees yield 10 bushels)
Total harvest= 350

ratio= 10x/350= x/35

A is the answer

Total harvest =350
For x trees => yield = 10x
now let the fraction be p => p*350=10x=> p=10x/350=x/35
Smash A

Yield of x trees = 10 bushels * x = 10x bushels
Yield of orchard = 350 bushels

Fraction yield of x trees = 10x/350 = x/35

Ans. A

OG 2017 New Question

I did it algebraically but wanted to check accuracy.

Let x number of trees = 7. (I wanted a round result with 350 in the denominator. 70/350 works.)

Each tree produces 10 bushels. Total for x trees is 70 bushels.

Fraction of total (from these 7 trees) is 70/350 or 7/35.

Using x = 7, find the answer that yields 7/35. That is Answer A.

Others can be eliminated quickly. Answer C, D, and E don't yield fractions. With x = 7, Answer B can be calculated quickly; it equals 93/100. Incorrect.

Answer A

x of the trees in the orchard each yielded 10 bushel of apples
means x*10,
total there are 350 apples
so answer should be x*10/350
so answer should be x/35

E) 350–10x



We are given that the harvest yield from a certain apple orchard was 350 bushels of apples and that x trees in the orchard each yielded 10 bushels of apples. Thus, those x trees yielded 10x bushels of apples, and therefore, those x trees yielded 10x/350 = x/35 of the harvest.

Answer: A
