Using Multiplication to Solve Equations
9Y5 had only packed 1/8 of the meals he was supposed to pack. The astronut had only been given 3 3/4 meals. How many meals should 9y5 have packed for the astronut?

ok well since 3 3/4 is only 1/8 of what 9Y5 has packed. You should multiply 3 3/4 by 8 which should equal 30.
3 3/4 X 8 = 30
So 30 meals should be packed for the astronut. 
Do this problem the same way as I showed you for the last problem. Hint: the answer is between 24 and 32.
We'll be glad to check your answer.
