    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let calories present in apple = x

    Then as per the question, calories present in banana = 2x-15

    Total calories = 141

    x+2x-15=141

    3x = 141+15

    3x = 156

    x = 52

    Calories present in apple = 52 calories

    Calories present in banana = 2 (52) - 15

    = 104-15 = 89
