This guy starts with a bag that's half full, and eats the equivalent of 1/4 of the whole bag. If this is true, then how much of a whole bag did he eat? If, on the other hand, he eats 1/4 of the existing 1/2 bag, then how much of a theoretical whole bag of popcorn does he eat? Answer NOT the same as in "This guy." Just wanted to draw attention to how important it is to be precise in writing a problem statement.

no, I'm sorry Please let's suppose that the bag, when it is full, contains 1 Kg of popcorns, then, since we have 1/2 of total content, we have 0.5 Kg of popcorns, right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes?
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
ok! Now if I heat 1/4 of such content, then I eat 1/4 * 0.5 =0.125 Kg, right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
and 0.125 = 1/8 of 1 Kg
anonymous
  • anonymous
3/4?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no 1/8
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
no, we have 0.125= (1/8) * 1
anonymous
  • anonymous
1/8
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
