Q:
# Haley has 3 3/8 cups of sugar to make pies. If each pie uses 2 1/4 cups of sugar, how many pies can she make?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:With 3 3/8 cups of sugar Haley can make one and a half pie.Step-by-step explanation:The amount of sugar required to make each pie = 2 1/4 cupNow, [tex]2 \frac{1}{4} = 2 + \frac{1}{4} = 2 + 0.25 = 2.25[/tex]So, Haley uses 2.25 cup of sugar foe each pie.Total cups of Sugar Haley has = 3 3/8 cups.Now, [tex]3 \frac{3}{8} = 3 + \frac{3}{8} = 3 + 0.375 = 3.375[/tex]So, the total amount of sugar Haley has is 3.375 cups.Now, [tex]\textrm{Number of pies she can make} = \frac{\textrm{Total cups of sugar she has}}{\textrm{Cups of sugar required for each cake}}[/tex]= [tex]\frac{3.375}{2.25} =1.5[/tex]or the number of pies she can make = 1.5Hence, with 3 3/8 cups of sugar Haley can Make 1 1/2 pie.
