    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?

    Good. There are 76 full groups of 8. How many sandwiches are there in 76 groups of 8?

    No. You multiply 76 by 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?
