159 green If there are 14 baskets of apples and 36 apples in each basket then there are 504 apples in all (14*36=504) Then you can take 504-225-120 (the red and the yellow) and whatever is left must be the green. That equals 159. Hope that helps.


The answer is 159 green apples . Here's why: 14 times 36 = 504 225 + 120=345 504 - 345=159 You multiply 36 by 14 because the result is going to be the total of green , yellow and red apples . The total is 504 and the total of yellow and red apples is 345 . You subtract those two to find the total of green apples , which is 159.
