A fruit dealer bought apples at 18 cents a dozen. He sold 80% of them at the rate of 2 for 5 cents and the remainder at the rate of 5 for 2 cents, gaining 58 cents on the transaction.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

How many apples did he buy ?

Can you give me some hints please ?

Thanks
