Apples sell for $1.29 a pound, and there is an average of 3 apples per pound. About how many apples would you expect to get for $5.00?
First, you need to divide $1.29 by 3.
Did you get $.43? That's the amount that one apple costs.
Now -- divide $5.00 by .43.
That answer will tell you about how many apples you can buy for $5.00.
