Question

Kimane and a friend picked apples. Kimane picked 4 2/3 lbs and his friend picked 5 5/6 lbs. About how many more pounds of apples do they need to pick to have about 20 pounds of apples all together?

## Answers ( )

Answer: They need about 9 more pounds

I hope this helps!

Answer:9 1/2 pounds

Step-by-step explanation:The total weight of apples picked so far is …

4 2/3 + 5 5/6 = (4 +5) +(4/6 +5/6) = 9 + 9/6 = 9 + 1 1/2 = 10 1/2

Then the weight of apples needed so the total is 20 pounds is …

20 -10 1/2 = (20 -10) -1/2 = 9 1/2

They need to pick about 9 1/2 more pounds of apples to have 20 pounds altogether.
