Question 1.

Mr. Young’s recipe calls for 6 times as much lettuce as peas. If he has 12 cups of lettuce, how many cups of peas does he need?

__y × 6 = 12; 12 ÷ 6 = 2 cups of peas__

Answer:

Number of cups of peas he needs = 2.

Explanation:

Mr. Young’s recipe calls for 6 times as much lettuce as peas.

Number of cups he has of lettuce = 12.

Number of cups of peas he needs = Number of cups he has of lettuce ÷ 6

= 12 ÷ 6

= 2.

Question 2.

A carousel has 8 times as many red horses as blue horses. If there are 32 red horses on the carousel, how many blue horses are there?

Answer:

Explanation:**
**Number of red horses = 32.

A carousel has 8 times as many red horses as blue horses.
