**Ms. Sue**, Friday, November 9, 2012 at 6:16pmNone of the answer choices is complete. C is a start.

But then to find the total number of packages they sold, you'd need to multiply the sum of the two fractions by 24.

5/8 * 24 = 15 packages

**Jerald**, Friday, November 9, 2012 at 6:20pmThose are the only choices. But would C be correct out of all of them?

**Ms. Sue**, Friday, November 9, 2012 at 6:21pmYes, it's most correct. But it doesn't answer the question.

Please check with your teacher about this faulty problem.
