A bag of oranges weighs 5 1/4 pounds. How much does 1 1/2 bags weigh?
Ok, so this is what I did : made each into improper fraction liket his. 23/4 x 3/2 = 69/8.
Now, I divide 69/8 and I come up with 62 5/8
right ?

Does your answer make sense to you?
5 1/4 = 21/4
(21/4) * (3/2) = 63/8 = 7 7/8 pounds 
Oh no I times it wrong ! No doesn't make sense what I did. Thank you! Getting tired I gues. Thank you.

You're welcome.

i think it might be 7 7/8 because that's the answer
