Watch this video and answer the math question.

Here's a recap of the facts from the video:

New Bag of Dog Food:      16.5 pounds
Dog Food Container:           25 pounds

If I have 5 bags of New Dog Food, how many times can I fill Mia's Dog Food Container to the top?

You can not use a calculator, but you can get a blank piece of paper to help you.

(Once the answers are approved, read each other's answers and reply if you agree with the answer or if you don't, what you think they did wrong.  But say it nicely!)

1. you can fill the container 3 times because if you times 5*16.5 you get 82.5 the you have to add 25 to 25 then add 25 again and you get75 so you can fillthe container 3 times

2. I did 16.5*5=82.5 then, 82.5/25=3.3 So,the answer is 3.3 times.

T.H.

1. I totally agree with you.

3. I found the answer by multiplying 16.5 times 5 (number of bags) to get 82.5. And if the tub can hold 25 pounds, 82.5 divided by 25 is equal to 3.The answer is 3 with 7.5 pounds left over.

1. I totaly agree but i just put about 3

2. i agree with u and i like the way u did it.

4. it can be filled 3 x's with 3 lb left over. I multiplied 16.5x5=82.5. Then I divided 82.5 divided by 25=3.3. C.N.

1. I agree with you.

5. I took 16.5 X 5 =82.5 then I divided 82.5 divided by 25 = 3 and I got 7.5 pounds left over.

6. Ms. Altic can fill the the box 3 times and have 3 pounds left after she filled the box the last time because... 16.5x5=82.5 and 82.5/25 is 3.3 so the answer is three times filled and three pounds left over.

7. To get the answer to the problem first I did 16.5*5 because I needed to know how much dog food is in 5 bags. Next I did 82.5/25 because I had 82.5 pounds of food and the container holds 25 pounds. I got the 3.3 as the answer.

8. I multiply 16.5 times 5. Then devide 82.5 by 25. And got 3 in all remander of 7.5.

9. First I did 16.5x5 which is 82.5 and did 82.5/25 which is 3.3 and thatis my answer.

1. I did 16.5x5 and that is 82.5 and what I did was 82.5/25
that would be 3.3 and thats how I got my answer.

2. i agree i got the same answer

10. 16.5 * 5 = 82.5
82.5 / 25 = 3.3

Mrs. Altic can fill Mia's Dog Food Container to the top 3 times. She will have .3 lb left.

11. My answer is 3.3. I got my answer by first multiplying 16.5 by 5 equals 82.5.Next I divided 82.5 by 25 equals 3.3.NM

1. good job on soving it

12. You can fill Mia's Dog Food Container to the top 3 times if you have 5 bags of new dog food. First, I multiplied 16.5 by 5 because you have 5 bags of new dog food.I got 82.5.Next, I knew that 25 times 3 equals 75 so, I knew that you could fill it 3 times with 7.5 left over.

1. i agree with you M.A.
C.N.

2. i agree

13. The answer that i got was Mrs. Altic can fill the container 3.3 times.

I got this answer by multiplying 16.5x5=82.5.

then multiplyed 82.5 divided by 25 and got 3.3.

1. I totally agree I got the same answer. The answer I got was Mrs. Altic can get fill the container 3.3 times.

I got this by multiplying 16.5x5=82.5

And then I divided 82.5 by 25 and got 3.3.

14. i got the awnser by multiplying 16.5x5=82.5 mrs.Altic can fill mias dog food container about 3 times

15. Mia's container can be filled about 3 times with7.5 left over. first i did 16+16 and got 32 then i did .5+.5 and get 1 then i did 32+1 and got 33. Then i did 33+33 and got 66. And that = 4 bags. Next i did 66+16.5 and get 82.5. And that was the last bag. Then i new 25 does not go into 82 but it goes into 75 3 times. And that is how i got my answer.

16. i know mia has 5 bags so i multapled and got 82.5 and the added and got my fanal anwer is 115.5

17. Mrs.altic can fill he container 3 times
first, I multiplied 16.5x5=82.5
then, i divided 25 divied by 82=3 and that is how i got my answer

18. Mrs.ALtic can fill the container 3.3 times

I got this answer by multiplying 16.5 x 5 = 82.5

then I divided 82.5 by 25 and got 3.3

19. i got 3.3 by doing 16.5 x 5 to get 82.5 and divided it by 25 to get 3.3.

20. you can fill the container 2 times. if you want to fill it to the top you have to add 16.5 plus 16.5 is 33.0 wich is greater than 25.0. then you have to take 33.0 - 25.0 = 8.

21. I got 3.3 by multiplying by 5 then dividing by 25.

22. I know mia has 5 new bags of dog food and each bag equals 16.5. I multiplied 16.5 times 5 and got 82.5. Then i divided 82 by 25 and got 3.3.

23. MY ANSWER IS 90.5 BECAUSE 16.5 TIMES 5 = 90.5

24. 5, because if she has 5 new containers of dog food and the big container holds 25 pounds of dog food you could do 25x5=5 so she can fill the big container 25x.
