Let there are x number of people

Apple chooser = x/3

banana chooser = x/4

orange chooser = 2x/5

so left are lichi chooser = x - (x/3 + x/4 +2x/5)= x/60

and lichi chooser = 3

so, x/60 = 3

⇒x =180

Apple chooser = 60

banana chooser = 45

orange chooser =72

lichi chooser = 3

**number of total people in group is 180**

Apple chooser = x/3

banana chooser = x/4

orange chooser = 2x/5

so left are lichi chooser = x - (x/3 + x/4 +2x/5)= x/60

and lichi chooser = 3

so, x/60 = 3

⇒x =180

Apple chooser = 60

banana chooser = 45

orange chooser =72

lichi chooser = 3

Let the total number of people be x

people who chose apple=x/3

people who chose banana=x/4

people who chose orange=2x/5

people who chose litchi=3

x/3+x/4+2x/5+3=x

(20x+15x+24x)/60+3=x

59x/60+3=x

3=x-59x/60

3=x/60

x=180

therefore there were 180 people in the group

people who chose apple=x/3

people who chose banana=x/4

people who chose orange=2x/5

people who chose litchi=3

x/3+x/4+2x/5+3=x

(20x+15x+24x)/60+3=x

59x/60+3=x

3=x-59x/60

3=x/60

x=180

therefore there were 180 people in the group
