# At the fair

At the fair I bought 6 pineapples and 2 jackfruits for \$15. If I could have bought 4 more pineapples for \$14 than jackfruits for \$ 9 , what would have been the price of each.

Though this looks like simple maths question but I am not able to unterstand what is meant be this line in question--
"If I could have bought 4 more pineapples for \$14 than jackfruits for \$ 9 "

I think that this means:
6p+2j=\$15
mj=\$9
(m+4)p=\$14

Which implies, j=\$9/m
Which implies, p=\$14/m+4

I think it means this:
j * priceJ = \$9
(j + 4) * priceP = \$14

where m = no of jackfruits
j = price of a jackfruit
p = price of a pineapple

Don't forget the ( )

p=\$14/(m+4)
