Julia works in a deli. She slices meats and cheeses from large blocks. She was asked to prepare an order that was faxed in. The order called for meat to cut into smaller bags of 1/2 of a pound and the cheese to be prepared in 1/4 of a pound bags. The order was for 9 pounds of meat and 5 pounds of cheese. How many bags will Julia need for this order?

for the meat, you need\(9\div\frac{1}{2}=18 bags\)

for the cheese you need\(5\div\frac{1}{4}=20bags\)

\(18+20+38bags\)

so 38 bags!

hope this helps,
