Jake can carry 6 1/4 pounds of wood in from the barn. His father can carry 1 5/7 times as much as Jake. How many pounds can Jake's father carry?
Answer: 1 3/28
Can you please double check the above answer. I don't know if it is right or wrong.
2. A glass can hold 3 1/3 cups of water. A bowl can hold 2 3/5 times the amount in the glass. How many cups can a bowl hold?
3 1/3 x 2 3/5
10/3x 13/15=
On this one I am lost on how to figure out the answer from here.
Please help

Ms. Sue
1. Your answer is not right.
Multiply 1 5/7 by 6 1/4
2. 2 3/5 is obviously more than 13/15

Ms. Sue. I meant put the answer for number 1 as 300/28 but them I am confused on what to do from there.
I am confused on number 2. 
Ms. Sue
300/28
Divide the numerator by the denominator.
The easiest way to figure out these problems is to turn the fractions into decimals.
Divide the numerator by the denominator.

When I do 300/28 my answer then comes out to 1 3/28 is that the correct answer?

Ms. Sue
No.

I will try to rework that one again to see what other answer I can get and then have you check on it.
