Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

In terms of weight

3 pears = 1 coconut

1 coconut = 18 strawberries

therefore 

3 pears = 18 strawberries

1 pear = 18/ 3 strawberries

1 pear = 6 strawberries

Therefore, 6 strawberries weigh the same as a pear 

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
