1.
A recipe uses 2 53 cups of a raison mix to make 3 dozen muffins. According to this recipe how
many muffins can you make if you have 15 cups of raisin mix?
Solution
1.
How many parts fit into the whole:
5
15  2 53  15  13
 15  13
 5,769231
5
So the amount of muffins that can be made: 5, 76923112  3  207, 69
So one can make 207 muffins.
Here the important part of the answer is to interpret the remainder in the context given.
