The weight of the block that Katie has is 16 1/3 pounds

Step-by-step explanation:

Katie has: 4 full cement blocks and 4/6 (or 2/3 ) of the normal size of a cement block

For one full block, it weighs 3 2/4 ( or 1/2) pounds, if you want to find the answer of the question, you need to multiply the weight with the cement blocks that Katie have.

First do the four full cement blocks:

4 * 3 2/4 = ?

4 * 14/4 = ?

Cancel the 4 that is being multiplied and the 4 that is being divided by 14.

= 14.

Now do the 4/6 (or 2/3) cement block:

2/3 * 3 2/4 = ?

2/3 * 14/4 = ?

Multiply the fractions together:

= 28/12

= 2 1/3
