Annue must send two packages. One package weighs 11 1/8 lbs. and the other weighs 9 1/5 lbs. what is the total weight of the two packages?

Is it 23 1/8 lb?

    You should realize this can't be right. 11 plus 9 was 20 when I went to school. 1/8 + 1/5 is less than 1/2.

    Please try again.

    Ok so then I think it would be 20 1/20, right,
    because the fractions add is 2/40 which reduces to 1/20? therefore making it 20 1/20 lbs????

  • math 156 - ,

    1/8 = 5/40
    1/5 = 8/40

    5/40 + 8/40 = 13/40

    Your packages weigh 20 13/40 pounds
