Mrs. Sanders bought a block of chocolate that weighed 3⁄8 of a pound. She cut the chocolate into 3 equal pieces. What was the weight of each piece of chocolate?

Answers

each piece weigh 1/8 of a pound

Step-by-step explanation:

3/8 divided by 3 is same as

3/8 multiplied by 1/3

3/8 (1/3) = 3/24

Reduce to simple form

3/24 = 1/8 of a pound

0.00125

Step-by-step explanation:

Mr sander bought a block of chocolate of 3.75 pound

weigh of one block of chocolate =3.75÷1000

=00.0375gram

she had cut the chocolate into 3part=00.0375÷3

=0.00125gram

weight of each piece of chocolate =00 .0125gram

The answer is each piece will weigh 1/8 of a pound.

Step-by-step explanation:

If she has 3/8 pounds of chocolate and cuts it into 3 pieces we will divide the total amount (or in this case weight) of the chocolate by 3 in order to get our answer. By taking 3/8 and splitting it into 3 equal pieces we are left with 3 pieces each weighing 1/8 of a pound. You can verify this is correct by multiplying 1/8 by 3 to get 3/8

0.00125
