This is a proportion question
It says 1/2 crates of apple are used for every 3/4 crates of oranges
For 5/2 crates of apple, x crates of oranges will be needed.
To get x, we simply multiply 1/2 by x and equate it to 3/4 multiplied by 5/2
This means: 0.5x = 0.75 * 2.5
x = (0.75 * 2.5) : 0.5 = 3.75
Hence for 5/2 crates for apple, she will need 15/4 crates of oranges.
