3 free sandwiches for every 5 sandwiches means that in every group of 8 sandwiches, 3 are free. 611 is how many groups of 8?

Great. 76 groups of 8 sandwiches are a total of 608 sandwiches. She needs 611, so she needs 3 more sandwiches to have a total of 611. That means she needs to pay for 76 groups of 8 sandwiches and pay for 3 more sandwiches. In each group of 8 sandwiches, she only pays for 5 sandwiches. What is 5 times 76?

Good. She pays for 380 sandwiches (5 * 76) and receives 608 sandwiches (8 * 76). Now she needs to pay for 3 more sandwiches to have a total of 611. What is 380 + 3?
