Question

Christy purchased 6.75 pounds of red licorice and 2.37 pounds of black licorice. How much licorice does she need to put in each bag if she divides the total amount into 10 equal-sized bags?

The total amount of licorice Christy has is:

6.75+2.37=9.12 pounds6.75+2.37=9.12\text{ pounds}

Since this is to be divided equally into 10 equal-sized bags, we divide the total amount by 10. We can do this by moving the decimal point by 1 place to the left:

9.12 pounds10=0.912 pound\dfrac{9.12\text{ pounds}}{10}=\color{#c34632}0.912\text{ pound}
