#1 - forget about the blue pencils. There are 8 yellows in each package. So, in 426 packages, there are 8*426=3408.

Note that the title of the problem set was "Multiply a 3- digit number by a 1- digit number". That should have been a clue that your approach was wrong.

#2 - multiply and check:

3*616 = 1848

4*616 = 2464

5*616 = 3080

So, which is closest to 3000?

#3

So, whatcha think? Are 2250 erasers enough for 3000 pencils?

1. Why did you multiply by 4? You only need to find the total of yellow pencils.

2. 3000 / 616 = ?

3. Right.
