Mrs. Dalton needs 1/2 cup mixed nuts for her granola recipe. She only has 1/4 cup measuring cup. Write the amount of mixed nuts she will use for the recipe.
Fill up the 1/4 cup measuring cup twice because 2 times 1/4 equals 1/2.
She will have to use 1/2 cup of mixed nuts. Since she doesn't have the 1/2 measuring cup she'll have to use the 1/4 cup twice. There's 4 1/4 in a whole. So half of that is 2.
