Q:
# Mary's 3 hamsters each eat three-eighths of cup of grain a day, if she has 6 and 3/4 cups of grain, how many days will the grain last?

Accepted Solution

A:

Hello!

3/8 times 3 equals 9/8 which is also 1 1/8. If you multiply 3/4 by two (numerator and denominator) then you will get 6/8. And if you multiply 9/8( I just find it easier with 9/8) by 6 you will get 54/8. And the grain will last for 6.75 days.

I may be wrong let me know.

Hope this helps!
