## anonymous one year ago you make 60 ounces of dough for breadsticks. each breadstick requires 5/4 ounces of dough. how many breadsticks can u make

1. DDCamp

How many times does 5/4 go into 60?

2. anonymous

0.025

3. anonymous

$\frac{60}{\frac{5}{4}}=48$

i have to turn it in turn it in to a fraction and show my work. i hate stupid word problems

5. DDCamp

Turning it into a fraction isn't too bad: $60 \rightarrow \frac{60}{1}$ Then we have: $\frac{60}{1} \div \frac{5}{4} \rightarrow \frac{60}{1} \times \frac{4}{5}$
