Homework Help: Math, Algebra.

Posted by -3- on Tuesday, October 9, 2012 at 9:29pm.

2. Sylvia has 6 1/2 boxes of chocolate to share at a family picnic. If she gives each person 1/3 of a box, how many people can receive chocolate?

13, 17, 19, or 21?

I believe that the answer is 19. Take 6 1/2, divided by 1/3, and get 19 1/2. Since 19 is the closest answer, the answer is 19..

Am I right, or wrong?
