Convert the mixed number to a fraction: 3 1/4
Multiply the denominator in the fraction (ie. 4) by the whole number (ie. 3). Then add the product (4x3= 12) to the numerator in the fraction (ie. 1). The answer is 12+1=13.
If oranges are sold at $3 a pound, about how many pounds (rounded to the nearest whole number) can be bought with $13?
Divide the dollars (ie. $13) by amount charged per pound (ie. $3). The answer is 4 with a remainder of 1. However, the question asks for nearest rounded number. Therefore, 4 pounds is the answer.
