John buys twice as many apples as Sarah buys oranges. Together they buy 12 pieces of fruit. If x is the number of oranges and y is the number of apples, write a system of equations to represent the number of apples and oranges purchased. Then solve the system to determine the number of apples and oranges purchased. Question 7 options: 1) x + y = 12 y = x + 2 5 apples; 7 oranges 2) x + y = 12 y = x + 2 7 apples; 5 oranges 3) x + y = 12 x = 2y 4 apples; 8 oranges 4) x + y = 12 y = 2x 8 apples; 4 oranges
