If a salad weighing 135 oz. contains 3oz of banannas for every 1oz of strawberries and has the same number of oz. of cantaloupe as strawberries, how many oz. of banannas are in the salad? Thanks!Answer by ptaylor(2052)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Let x=amount of strawberries Then x= amount of cantaloupes also And 3x=amount of bananas strawberries + cantaloupes + bananas = 135 oz. So our equation to solve: x+x+3x=135 5x=135 divide both sides by 5 x=27 oz of strawberries and 27 oz of cantaloupe 3x=3*27=81 oz -----------------------------of bananas ck 27+27+81=135 135=135 Hope this helps----ptaylor
