  1. just think about it. How much clay was used?

    1 1/2 + 3/4 = 1 2/4 + 3/4 = 1 5/4 = 9/4 lbs

    Now, if each student uses 1/8 lb, the 1 whole pound is enough for 8 students, right?

    So 8 * 9/4 = 72/4 = 18 students can be satisfied.

    Or, since 1/4 lb = 2/8 lb, each 1/4 lb of clay will provide 2 students. Since there are 9/4 lb of clay, that's enough for 9*2 = 18 students.
