    Answer:

    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

    Finally, you add up the full blocks and the 2/3 cement block to get your answer:

    2 1/3 + 14 = 16 1/3

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