i need help with this homework question: it takes 1and1/3 ounces of cocoa to make a cup of hot cocoa. how many cups can be made from 32 ounces of cocoa?

You will need to divide 32 by 1 and 1/3. 1 1/3 = 4/3. 32 divided by 4/3 is the same as 32 x 3/4 because dividing is the same as multiplying by the reciprocal of the second number. The answer is 24.
