Question

# A bag of grass seed weighs 5.8 pounds. Calculate the pounds 2.5 bags would weigh.

- 3.3
- 13.8
- 14.5
- 8.3

Hint:

### In the given question, the weight of a single bag of grass seed and number of bags to be weighed is given. It is required to find the weight of 2.5 bags. So to find that we simply need to find the product of the weight of one bag and the number of bags to be weighed.

## The correct answer is: 14.5

### Step by step solution:

Given,

weight of a bag of grass seed = 5.8 pounds

Number of bags whose weight is to be found = 2.5

Now, to fins the total weight of 2.5 bags we need to multiply the number of bags, i.e., 2.5 with the weight of each bag which is 5.8 pounds.

Therefore, the weight of 2.5 bags = 5.8 x 2.5 pounds

= 14.5 pounds

Thus, option (c) is the correct option.

Another approach to the question could be that we could add 5.8 pounds, i.e., the weight of one bag 2.5 (number of bags to be weighed) times.

Thus, the weight of 2.5 bags = 5.8 + 5.8 + (5.8÷2) pounds

= 14.5 pounds

Hence, option (c) is the correct option.

### If each shirt costs $6.90 and you buy 5 of them, then the total cost is _______

Another approach to the question might be that we can just add $6.90 five times since 5 shirts are bought.

Therefore, the total cost = $ (6.90+6.90+6.90+6.90+6.90)

= $ 34.50

Thus, total cost would be $34.50 which is option (a)
