Example Question #41 : How To Divide

Hannah wants to sell scarves at her school art fair at the end of the year. It takes Hannah 3 weeks to knit one scarf. If there are 112 days left before the end of the year, how many scarves will Hannah be able to make in time for the fair?

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

The question tells us that Hannah has 112 days before the art fair, so first we need to find out how many weeks 112 days equals.  We know there are 7 days in a week, so we need to divide 112 by 7.

Now we can divide 16 weeks by 3 (the amount of time it takes Hannah to knit one scarf).

Hannah will not be able to sell the unfinished scarf, so we know she will have 5 scarves to sell at the art fair.
