    Answer:

    Dorita can make 18 whole miniature cups of dessert.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given:

    Amount of pudding she had = 4\frac{3}{5}\ cups

    Now the given number is in mixed fraction so we will convert in Improper fraction.

    To convert mixed fraction into Improper fraction we need multiply the whole number part by the fraction’s denominator then add that to the numerator and then write the result on top of the denominator.

    4\frac{3}{5}\ cups can be Rewritten as \frac{23}{5}\ cups

    Amount of pudding she had = \frac{23}{5}\ cups

    Amount of pudding required for each miniature cup = \frac{1}{4}\ cup

    We need to find the number of whole miniature cups of dessert can Dorita make.

    Solution:

    Now we can say that;

    number of miniature cups can be calculated by dividing Amount of pudding she had by Amount of pudding required for each miniature cup.

    framing in equation form we get;

    number of miniature cups = \frac{\frac{23}{5}}{\frac{1}{4}}=\frac{23}{5} \times \frac{4}{1} = \frac{92}{5}\ cups\ \ Or \ \ 18\frac{2}{5}\ cups

    Hence Dorita can make 18 whole miniature cups of dessert.
