Question 5.
Mr Peters has a small bag that can hold 5 pounds of mixed nuts. If he uses a cup that holds $$\frac{1}{3}$$ of a pound of nuts, how many cups of nuts will he need to fill the bag?
Number of cups of nuts he will need to fill the bag =15.

Explanation:
Number of pounds of mixed nuts Mr Peters has a small bag that can hold = 5.
Number of pounds of mixed nuts he uses a cup that holds = $$\frac{1}{3}$$
Number of cups of nuts he will need to fill the bag = Number of pounds of mixed nuts Mr Peters has a small bag that can hold ÷ Number of pounds of mixed nuts he uses a cup that holds
= 5 ÷ $$\frac{1}{3}$$
= 5 ÷ 3
= 15.

Question 6.
Harry has a bowl that can hold 4 gallons. If he uses a spoon that holds $$\frac{1}{9}$$ of a gallon, how many spoonfull will it take to fill the bowl?
Number of spoon full it takes to fill the bowl = 36.

Explanation:
Number of gallons Harry has a bowl that can hold = 4.
Number of gallons if he uses a spoon that holds = $$\frac{1}{9}$$
Number of spoon full it takes to fill the bowl = Number of gallons Harry has a bowl that can hold ÷ Number of gallons if he uses a spoon that holds
= 4 ÷ $$\frac{1}{9}$$
= 4 × 9
= 36.

Question 7.
Maria has a book. It will take 5 hours to read it. If she reads $$\frac{1}{4}$$ of an hour every day, how many days will it take for her to finish the book?
Number of days it takes for her to finish the book = 20.

Explanation:
Number of hours it takes to read a book = 5.
Number of hours she takes to read a book every day = $$\frac{1}{4}$$
Number of days it takes for her to finish the book = Number of hours it takes to read a book ÷ Number of hours she takes to read a book every day
= 5 ÷ $$\frac{1}{4}$$
= 5 × 4
= 20.

Question 8.
Sam has 7 cans of paint. If he uses $$\frac{1}{3}$$ of a can every day, how many days will it be before he needs to buy more paint?
Number of days it be before he needs to buy more paint = 21.

Explanation:
Number of cans of paint Sam has = 7.
Number of cans every day he uses = $$\frac{1}{3}$$.
Number of days it be before he needs to buy more paint = Number of cans of paint Sam has ÷ Number of cans every day he uses
= 7 ÷ $$\frac{1}{3}$$
= 7 × 3
= 21.

Question 9.
A grocery store has 6 cases of grapes. If the store sells $$\frac{1}{4}$$ of a case of grapes every day, how many days before the store will run out of grapes?
Number of cases of grapes every day the store sells = $$\frac{1}{4}$$
= 6 ÷ $$\frac{1}{4}$$
