For multiplying, you don't need to find a common denominator. Just multiply both numbers across. You'll get 18 x 3 over 5 (since 5 x 1 = 5). What do you get? ??

Nevermind.. 1st problem was 6.25 and stayed at 6 because that would be the same amount for everyone. For #2, 3.75 was the average. But, need to stay at whole cup which would 3 for everyone to have equal amount, right?

oh.. so you multiplied 8 * 3 instead of 4. But, I thought I needed to round 3.75 up to 4. But, if using 8 *3, then 30-24 = 6. There are 6 cups left over. So, when shouldn't i round up? THe 1st problem with the pizza, I also rounded up.
