A farmer sells 9.3 kilograms of apples and pears at the farmer's market.
of this weight is apples, and the rest is pears. How many kilograms of pears did she sell at the farmer's market?
The answer is 1.8 kg of pears.
Okay, so there is the total of 9.3 kg!
3/4 is apples
1/4 is pears
instead of doing 9.3 x 3/4 then subrtacting it, we can do any easier way!
Just do PEARS x TOTAL KG
= 1/4 x 9.3
9.3/4 = 2.325
I hope this works! I'm not necessarily good at math as other people I know, but I try to help others!
