Chelsea is using 5 different recipes to bake 5 batches of brownies for a bake sale. The greatest amount of sugar needed for 1 recipe is 3 cups. The least amount of sugar needed for 1 recipe is 1.25 cups. Which is a reasonable amount of sugar Chelsea will use when baking the brownies?
A. Less than 3 cups
B. Between 3 and 5 cups
C. Between 5 and 8 cups
D. More than 8 cups
You can figure it out the same way as the last problem.
6.20 so C?
No. Please try again.
I added 1.25 and 3 and got 1.28
Then I multiplyed by 5. I don't know If i did it right or If I'm suppose to do that
1.25 + 3 = 4.25
4.25 / 2 = 2.125
2.125 * 5 = ?
Does / mean to divide and * mean to multiply?
Dont I divide it with 5? so it would be 4.25/5?
No. You need the total amount of sugar for 5 batches of brownies.
Think about it. One recipe alone calls for 3 cups of sugar. Five recipes can't be less than 3 cups.
