Divide 48 by 2/3.

Btw -- you're not looking for the number of pancakes -- but the number of times he'll eat pancakes with syrup from this bottle.

**JJ**, Wednesday, February 13, 2013 at 4:07pmSuppose you used 2 cups every time you ate pancakes, you would divide 48 cups by the 2 cups. Right?

This is a division problem you will divide 48 by 2/3 which is the same thing as multiplying by 3/2, so you will multiply 48 times 3/2

Since you are using less than 1 cup each time then you should be able to eat pancakes more than 48 times.
