calvin buys 3/5 pound of ground beef. he divides the beef into 6 equal portions.
a)find the weight of 1 portion of beef.
b)fin the weight of 4 portions of beef.

• math -

3/(5*6) = 3/30 = 1/10 = 0.1
times 4 = 0.4

• math -

(3/5)/ 6 = (3/5) * (1/6) = 3/30 = 1/10

(1/10) * 4 = ?

• math -

No.

That answer doesn't even make sense.

oh

• math -

1/10*4/1=4/10=2/5

Yay! You've got it!
