    Dale sent Sasha a 2 I/2-pound box of candy. Sasha's little sister ate I/4 of the candy.
    Sasha's pet poodle ate 1/8 of the original amount. Ifno one else has eaten any candy,
    how much candy does Sasha have left?

  • Math -

    1/4 + 1/8 = 2/8 + 1/8 = 3/8

    2 1/2 pounds - 3/8 =

    5/2 - 3/8 = 20/8 - 3/8 = 17/8 = 2 1/8 pounds left
