    Answer:

      B.  31

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The acreage Mr. Flowers intends to sell is 2/3 of his total, so is …

      (2/3)(23 1/4) = (2/3)(93/4) = 31/2 . . . . acres

    Divided by 1/2 (which is the size of a lot), we will get the number of lots this will make:

      (31/2)/(1/2) = 31/1 = 31

    Mr. Flowers will have 31 lots for sale.
