  • Math -

    #1 - forget about the blue pencils. There are 8 yellows in each package. So, in 426 packages, there are 8*426=3408.

    Note that the title of the problem set was "Multiply a 3- digit number by a 1- digit number". That should have been a clue that your approach was wrong.

    #2 - multiply and check:

    3*616 = 1848
    4*616 = 2464
    5*616 = 3080

    So, which is closest to 3000?

    So, whatcha think? Are 2250 erasers enough for 3000 pencils?

  • Math -

    1. Why did you multiply by 4? You only need to find the total of yellow pencils.

    2. 3000 / 616 = ?

    3. Right.
