My recipe for fruit salad is 2 1/4 cup of strawberries and 2 1/2 of bananas per serving. 5 people are coming over for dinner but one just ate so he will have 1/2 of a serving. that means I will need 4 1/2 servings of fruit salad. How many cups will I need for the dinner?
The math problems we will use is: 9/4x9/2 (strawberries) and 5/2x9/2 (bananas). 9/4 times 9/2 is 81/8. 5/2 times 9/2 is 40/4. Next we must turn them into mixed numbers. 81/8 is equal to 10 1/8. 40/4 is equal to 10.
Therefore, according to the math, I will need 10 1/8 cups of strawberries and 10 cups of bananas. I hope our guests are hungry!
