Question 14.
If each muffin contains the same amount of cornmeal, how many kilograms of cornmeal are in each corn muffin?
_____ kilograms

Answer:
0.15 kilograms

Explanation:
There are 1,000 muffins. Cornmeal = 150 Kg
If each muffin contains the same amount of cornmeal, 150 ÷ 1000 = 0.15
0.15 kilograms of cornmeal is in each corn muffin

Question 15.
If each muffin contains the same amount of sugar, how many kilograms of sugar, to the nearest thousandth, are in each corn muffin?
_____ kilograms

Answer:
0.07 kilograms

_____

Answer:
1.24

Explanation:
9.92 ÷ 8
Divide. 9 ones ÷ 8
Multiply. 8 × 1 ones = 8 ones. Subtract. 9 ones − 8 ones = 1 ones
Check. 8 ones shared among 8 groups as 1 whole.
1 one(s) cannot be shared among 8 groups without regrouping.
10 + 9 = 19 tenths
Divide. 19 tenths ÷ 8
Multiply. 8 x 2 tenths = 16 tenths. Subtract. 19 tenths − 16 tenths = 3 tenths
Check. 16 tenths shared among 8 groups as 2 tenths.
3 tenths(s) cannot be shared among 8 groups without regrouping.
1 tenth = 10 hundredths.
30 + 2 = 32 hundredths
Divide. 32 hundredths ÷ 8
Multiply. 8 x 4 hundredths = 32 hundredths. Subtract. 32 hundredths − 32 hundredths = 0 hundredths
Check. 32 hundredths shared among 8 groups as 4 hundredths.
So, 1.24

Question 11.
61)\(\overline { 207.4 }\)
_____

Answer:
3.4

Explanation:
207.4 ÷ 61
Divide. 207 ones ÷ 61
Multiply. 61 x 3 ones = 183 ones. Subtract. 207 ones − 183 ones = 24 ones
Check. 183 ones shared among 61 groups as 3 wholes.
24 one(s) cannot be shared among 61 groups without regrouping.
240 + 4 = 244 tenths
Divide. 244 tenths ÷ 61
Multiply. 61 x 4 tenths = 244 tenths. Subtract. 244 tenths − 244 tenths = 0 tenths
Check. 244 tenths shared among 61 groups as 4 tenths.
So, 3.4

Rate of Speed Formula

The formula for velocity, or rate of speed, is r = d ÷ t, where r represents rate of speed, d represents distance, and t represents time. For example, if an object travels 12 feet in 10 seconds, you can find its rate of speed by using the formula.
r = d ÷ t
r = 12 ÷ 10
r = 1.2 feet per second
Use division and the formula for rate of speed to solve.

She buys more than 3 poster boards and more than 3 paintbrushes. Find how many ounces of glass beads and how many jars of paint she buys. Then, suggest the number of poster boards and paintbrushes she might buy for the total spent.
Type below:
_________

Answer:
Isabella spends less than $14.00 for glass beads, paintbrushes, poster board, and paint.
She spends $1.68 on beads and $3.96 on paint.
Each beads = $0.28
$1.68/$0.28 = 6 beads
Each paint = $0.99
$3.96/$0.99 = 4 paints
$14 – ($1.68 + $3.96) = $8.36.
So, $8.36 needs to spend on more than 3 poster boards and more than 3 paintbrushes.
So, Each poster board = $0.75
paintbrushes = $0.95
If she buys more than 3, 3 x $0.75 = $2.25
$0.95 x 3 = $2.85
$2.25 + $2.85 = $5.1
So, $8.36 – $5.1 = $3.26
If $0.75 x 3 = $2.25
$0.95 x 1 = $0.95
$2.25 + $0.95 = 3.2
So, she can buy 3 + 3 = 6 poster boards
and 3 + 1 = 4 paintbrushes.
