A construction worker needs 3 2/3 pounds of concrete mix. He has 1 1/2 pounds of concrete mix in one bag, and he has 3 1/0 pound of concrete mix in another bag.

How many more pounds of concrete mix does the construction worker need?

If he has 1 1/2 pounds and another 3 1/10 pounds, he has (1 1/2 + 3 1/10) pounds  =  (4 + 1/2 + 1/10) pounds

  1/2 + 1/10  (using the common denominator of 10)  =  5/10 + 1/10  =  6/10

So, he has  4 3/5 pounds; this is more than he needs.

You are correct! But that is assuming that it is 3 1/10
