    John : Peter : Mary

    7 : 5 : 14

    7units : 5units : 14units

    Peter receive 18 mangoes less than Mary implies that 14 units - 5 units = 18

    We have:

    14 units - 5 units = 18

    9 units = 18

    1 unit = 18 / 9

    1 unit = 2

    Mangoes which Peter received

    = 5 units

    = 5 * 2

    = 10 mangoes
