Do you know how to start? c:
Thanks! So what do I have to do?
Alright, so you have the total amount of weight the pieces of butter AND the bag of sugar. But you want to just find the amount EACH piece of butter weighs. We already have the weight of the bag of sugar, which is 1.4 lbs. The total amount is 3.8 lbs. So first, what do you think we should do? :)

I think you should divide
Nope, not divide. Since we have the weight of the sugar already, which is part of the total amount, we should subtract because we're trying to find the weight of the pieces of butter. Understand or not really? c:
ooooooooooohhhhhhh! So you are saying I have to subtract.
Thanks a lot! By the way which grade are you in?
I'm in 11th c: You're probably in like 7th or 8th, right?
no way!!!!!!
I am in 5th
Oh wow, you're still really young lol :) You're not done with the problem though, there's more lol .
what!!!!!!!!!!
there is more?
I was born in 2005
Yup lol. Do you know what to subtract? c:
kind of.
3.8 divided by 1.4?
That problem was in my math homework.
We should subtract 1.4 from 3.8 because we want to take away the weight of the sugar, which is 1.4, from the total amount of weight, which is 3.8 :)
And what do you get when you subtract them? :)
2.4 lb.
Correct! So you got the sugar weight out of the way. So what we have left is the 6 pieces of butter, meaning 2.4= 6 pieces of butter. What should we do now? :)
divide?
I am not sure
Yes, divide! You would divide because you have to find out what EACH piece weights. So you will divide 2.4 into each piece of butter. Can you do that? :)
0.4?
sup vatos

Yes, correct! :)
