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.
