Answer:8 turtles

Step-by-step explanation:Each of Liam’s sea turtle sculpture weighs 3\8 pounds and he ships them in a wooden box that weighs 2 pounds.

The weight of the box filled with the sea turtles is 5 pounds.

This means that

the weight of the sea turtles in the wooden boxis:5 – 2 = 3 pounds

To find the number of sea turtles in the box, we simply

divide the total weight of the turtles in the box by the weight of each turtle. That is:= 8 turtles

There are 8 turtles in the box.
