2. 40% of 36.

Fresh ones have 20% non-water. So 20% of that plus 20% water.

3. All of these answers are wrong, the real answer is 9 because:

36*0.2(20%)=7.2, this is how much water the berries obtain.

Now you do 7.2 divided by 0.8 which equals 9 -you do this step to find out how much water and the rest of the stuff in the berries.

By the way i'm in 6th grade and hopefully this helps
