Q:
# Horace buys 2/4 pounds of blueberries for a pie he needs 48 ounces for the pie how many more pounds of blueberries does he need to buy

Accepted Solution

A:

So, 2/4 pounds of blueberries reduced is 1/2 pound of blueberries. There 16 ounces in a pound and 8 ounces in 1/2 a pound. He only bought 8 ounces of blueberries and he needs 48. Subtract 8 ounces that he already has from 48 ounces that he needs and get 40 ounces.
