A customer wants to buy 60 flowering plants. He wants 1/2 of them to be marigolds. He wants 1/3 of them to be pansies, and 1/4 of them to be petunias.

How many of each type of flowering plant will he buy?

The numbers do not add up..... 1/2 + 1/3 + 1/4 = 13/12 which is greater than 1 whole .....

the *approximate* numers of each would be

60 * 1/2 = 30 marigolds

60 * 1/3 = 20 pansies

60 * 1/4 = 15 petunias ( which adds to 65 plants because the fractions add to more than one)

Guest, there are** \(3\) answers** for your problem because it's asking you **how many of each flowering plant he should buy**.
