The ladle at an iron foundry can hold 8500 kg of molten iron; 646 metric tons of iron are needed to make rails. How many ladlefuls of iron will it take to make 646 metric tons of iron? (1 metric ton=1000 kg)
646 mtons x (1000 kg/1 mton) x (1 ladleful/8500 kg) = ?? ladlefuls. Check my thinking. Make sure the units we don't want cancel to leave just ladlefuls.
