A shipment of boxes weighs 40 pounds. There are 8 boxes and each weighs the same number of pounds. How much does each box weigh?

    40 / 8 = ?

    Since it didn't ask for an improper fraction or mixed number and that is what we are studying I came up with 40/8 as the improper and 5 for the mixed?

    / means divide.

    Divide 40 by 8. Yes, the answer is 5 pounds for each box.
