**Jab**, Sunday, October 2, 2011 at 3:04pmRight now the most I got is this:

1/3 = 0.33

Since she has 4 hours to cook it per pound then I did: .33 x 4 = 1.32.

So would the largest turkey she can buy be 1.32 pounds?

**Ms. Sue**, Sunday, October 2, 2011 at 3:21pmNo.

At 1/3 hour per pound, it's 3 pounds per hour. 3 * 4 = 12 pounds

6 / (1/2) = 6 * (2/1) = 12 people
