Problema Solution

Albertsons grocery planned a big sale on apples and received 990 crates from the wholesale market. Albertsons will bag these apples in plastic. Each plastic bag holds 110 of a crate. If Albertsons has no loss to perishables, how many bags of apples can be prepared?

Answer provided by our tutors

1 plastic bag holds 1/110 of a 1 crates

x plastic bags can hold 1/110 of 990 crates

Since the number of plastic bags is directly proportional to the number of crates we can write:

x : ((1/110)*990) = 1 : (1/110)
