Explanation: First, you know that 30% of the fruits are apples. So, 70% of the fruits must be oranges. If we know that 50% of the fruits are ripe and 25% are ripe apples, then we know that the remaining 25% are ripe oranges. Since there is 70% of oranges, then subtract 25% from 70% to get that 45% of fruits are oranges that are not ripe. Work: 100%-30%=70% 50%-25%=25% 70%-25%=45% Final Answer: 45% of fruits are oranges that are not ripe.
