Suppose the crate of bananas weight B pounds. the crate of oranges weight 8 pounds more than the crate of bananas. so the crate of oranges weighs B+8 pounds one crate of kiwis weighs 1/3 as much as a crate of bananas so the crate of kiwis weighs B/3 pounds. together the three crates weigh 43 pounds so B + (B+8) + (B/3) =43 pounds ^ ^ ^ | | | bananas Orange Kiwi
