John bought apples packed in boxes containing 3 kg of fruit, paying \$10 per box.

Then he sold the apples at \$9 per bag; each bag contains 2.35 kg of fruit.

How many kg of apples did John buy, if the profit was \$1260 dollars?

Let [tex]b[/tex] = number of boxes of apples that John bought.

His cost was [tex]10b[/tex] dollars.

He bought $3b$ kg of apples.

He divided them into $\frac{3b}{235}$ bags and sold them at \$9 each.

His revenue is: $9\left(\frac{3b}{2.3}\right) \,=\,\frac{27b}{2.35}$ dollars.

His profit is \$1260.

There is our equation! $\;\;\frac{27b}{2.35} - 10b \:=1260 $

Answer: [tex]\:b \:=\: 846\text{ boxes} \:=\:2538\text{ kg apples}[/tex]

In general, there are 0.453592 kilograms (kg) in a pound (lb). Therefore, if you have 1 kg of apples, that would be approximately 2.20462 lbs of apples.

To convert from pounds (lbs) to kilograms (kg), you can use the conversion factor of 0.453592. Simply multiply the number of pounds by 0.453592 to get the equivalent amount in kilograms.

The number of apples in 1 kilogram will vary depending on the size and weight of the apples. On average, 1 kilogram of apples could contain anywhere from 3-6 apples.

The cost of 1 kilogram of apples will depend on the type and quality of the apples, as well as the location and time of purchase. It is best to check with your local grocery store or farmer's market for current prices.

The amount of apples needed for a recipe will depend on the specific recipe and desired serving size. It is best to refer to the recipe for the exact amount needed. As a general guide, 1 kilogram of apples could yield around 8-10 medium-sized apples.
