The ratio = 8:10.40

Let cost of x oranges = Rs16.90

The ratio = x:16.90

⇒8:10.4 = x:16.9

⇒10.4x = 8 × 16.9

⇒10.4x = 135.2

⇒ x = 135.2/10.4

∴ x = 13

Therefore 13 oranges costs Rs16.90

If 8 orange cost =10.40

1 orange cost=10.40/8

how many oranges is needed for 16.90=13

1 orange cost=10.40/8

how many oranges is needed for 16.90=13
