You have to set it up clearly and cleanly and neatly. a). 3 and 1/4 = 13/4 = 26/8 2 and 1/2 = 5/2 = 20/8 5/8 = 5/8 Add the eighths: (26 + 20 + 5)/8 = 51/8 = 6 and 3/8 b). We want to know how many times 1/4 goes into the total amount. 51/8 = 25.5/4 That's 25 full servings, with 1/2 serving left over. ============================================== For me, this whole thing is much easier if you work it in decimals. a). 3 and 1/4 = 3.25 2 and 1/2 = 2.50 5/8 = . . . . . 0.625 Add um up: 6.375 quarts b). A serving is 0.25 quart. Divide 6.375 by 0.25 = 25.5 . . . 25 full servings, with 1/2 left for the kitchen help.
