THREE QUARTERS OF A POUND OF HONEY COSTS \$4 HOW MUCH HONEY WOULD YOU GET FOR \$6

• MATH -

Three Quarters = \$4
3/2 Quarters = \$2
\$6/\$2=3
(3/2)*3=9/2
9/2 Quarters

• MATH -

x/6 = (3/4) / 4
4x = 18/4
x = 18/16 = 9/8

You would get 9/8 pounds or 1 1/8 pound

or

\$4 will get you 3/4 pound
\$1 will get you 3/16 pound
\$6 will get you 18/16 or 9/8 pounds
