Problem 16 :

SMOOTHIES You need 3/4 cup of strawberries to make a smoothie. How many smoothies can you make with 3 cups of strawberries ?

Solution :

Cup of strawberries = 3/4

Number of smoothies = (3/4)/3

= 4

So, 4 smoothies can you make with 3 cups of strawberries.

Problem 17 :

WATERING PLANTS You have 5 gallons of water. You use 1/2 of the water to water a tree. Then you divide the rest of the water equally among 10 plants. How much water does each plant get ?

Solution :

Gallons of water = 5

You use half of the water to water a tree.

= 5 × (1/2 - 1)

= 5 × 1/2

= 5/2

The water equally among 10 plants.

= (5/2)/10

= 5/2 × 1/10

= 1/4

So, each plant get the water is 1/4.
