A bag of oranges weighs 5 1/4 pounds. How much does 1 1/2 bags weigh?
Ok, so this is what I did : made each into improper fraction liket his. 23/4 x 3/2 = 69/8.
Now, I divide 69/8 and I come up with 62 5/8
right ?

Ms. Sue,
Does your answer make sense to you?
5 1/4 = 21/4
(21/4) * (3/2) = 63/8 = 7 7/8 pounds
