  1. 0.25 * 21.5 = 5.375 = 5 3/8 pound for tacos

    21.5 - 5.375 = 16.125 for burgers

    16.125 / 0.25 = _________ burgers

    Round down since he can't make a half a burger.

  4. tacos:
    1/4 of 21 1/2 = .25*21.5 = 5.375 = 5 3/8

    That leaves 16.125 lbs
    2/3 of 16.125 = 10.75 lbs for burgers

    10.75 = 43/4 = 43 * 1/4
    means 43 burgers

  6. Um....this one was way worse than the other one. Not to be rude. U just need to explain instead of just doing the math. Act like u are teaching to a class. They wouldn't understand that.
