Equation

Mrs Pulotu went to the markets on Saturday to buy some fruits. She saw a whole range of fruits but decided to buy pineapples because they were on special.
If Mrs Pulotu buys 9 pineapples for $18.00. How many pineapples will she get for $48.00?
Answer - 33
How I got it - I got the answer by making a chart going in two's because 9x2=18, so I times it by 9 until i get upto 48, but it only went to 36. So then I looked at the chart and saw 12 is 6 so then I got 48. 
9+9+9+6 so the answer is 33.
Chart - 1 = 2  2=4  3=6  4=8  5=10  6=12  7=14  8=16  9=18  10=20
