I have a math sheet for homework and most questions are similar to the following:
Bob is making treat bags for his daughter's birthday party. he decided to use the recipe below for each bag.
1/3 cup peanuts
3/4 cup pretzels
1/5 cup raisins
2/3 cup popcorn
He needs to make to make 6 bags for each friend and 1/2 bag for his two year old. How much of each ingredient will he need to make 6 1/2 bags? How can I solve this problem?
1/3 * 6 1/2 = 1/3 * 13/2 = 13/6 = 2 1/6 cups
