Thanks! So what do I have to do?

  • ChantySquirrel1129**
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
ChantySquirrel1129**
  • ChantySquirrel1129**
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:

3.8 divided by 1.4?
anonymous
  • anonymous
That problem was in my math homework.
ChantySquirrel1129**
  • ChantySquirrel1129**
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 :)
ChantySquirrel1129**
  • ChantySquirrel1129**
And what do you get when you subtract them? :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
2.4 lb.
ChantySquirrel1129**
  • ChantySquirrel1129**
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? :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
divide?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I am not sure
ChantySquirrel1129**
  • ChantySquirrel1129**
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? :)
