A Gardner has 1 1/4 cubic feet of soil available for filling pots. Each pot will need 2/5 cubic foot to be filled. What is the greatest number of pots that the gardener fill

1 Answer

  • The greatest number of pots that can be filled is 3.

    In order to determine the greatest number of pots that can be filled, the quantity of soil available would be divided by the capacity of each pot.

    Number of pots that can be filled = 1 1/4 ÷ 2/5

    = 5/4  ÷ 2/5

    = 5/4 x 5/2 = 25/8 = 3 1/8

    Thus, the greatest number of pots that can be filled is 3.
