Problem 13 :
Solution :
= 5 × 4
= 20
= 4 × 5
= 20
Problem 14 :
Solution :
Problem 15 :
Solution :
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
= 3/4 × 1/3
= 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.
