The minimun portion of inches that can be measured with the ruler is 1/16''.
The precision , what is the minimun measurement that can be aprecciated by the ruler can be determined counting the number of disivion within 2 units. To this ruler we can count 16 division bwtween one unit and asecutive one.
The fractional portion is 5 / 8 = 0.4
each friend gets 0.1 of the salad compared to the 0.16 they would have gotton
so, it would be 7.28125
First we need to find the common denominator for 8 and 12.
8 = 8, 16, 24
12 = 12, 24
So we have 24 as our common denominator.
5 3/8 = 5 9/24
2 3/12 = 3 6/24 now we can add.
So that would be your answer 8 15/24
Hope this helps you. :-)
Where, x = total friends
The part of the salad has eaten =
Total part of the salad = 1,
Thus, the remaining part of the salad = original part - part has eaten
If there are x friends,
Then the portion of the original bowl of salad received by each friend
im pretty sure the answer is 3/4
1 - 1/3 = 2/3 of salad left
We don't know how many friends will come, so let's assume it's x of them who will visit you. In such case we have to divide 2/3 by x friends:
2/3 ÷ x =
= 2/3 * 1/x =
Each friend will get 2/3x of the salad.
