Solution

let the no. of oranges purchased be x.

cost price of oranges=5x.

he buys equal no. of bananas.

so no. of bananas=x.

cost price of x bananas=2x.

Now, he makes a profit of 20% on oranges.

therefore, selling price of oranges=5x+20%of 5x

=6x

profit on oranges=6x-5x=x

he makes a profit of 15% on bananas

therefore, selling price of bananas=2x+15% of 2x

=23x upon 10

profit on bananas=23x /10-2x=3x /10

Total profit made =x+3x /10=13x /10

According to ques,,, 13x /10=Rs 390

therefore x=300----Answer
