If 7 3/8 pounds of peanuts, 2 1/4 pounds of walnuts, and 1 pound of pecans are divided equally to create 5 bags of mixed nuts, how much does each bag weigh?

  • GED-Word Problems -

    2 1/4 = 2 2/8

    7 3/8 + 2 2/8 + 1 = 10 5/8 = 85/8

    85/8 / 5 = (85/8) * (1/5) = 85/40 = 2 5/40 = 2 1/8 pounds
