Textbook Problem

A banana nut bread recipe calls for 2 cups of flour. If 4 cups of flour weigh a pound, how many recipes can be made from a 5-pound bag of flour?

To determine

**To calculate:** How many recipes can be made by a 5-pound bag of flour, if the recipe requires 2 cups of flour and 4 cups of flour weighs a pound.

Explanation

**Given Information:**

Weight of flour bag is 5 pounds.

4 cups weighs similar to 1 pound.

One recipe requires 2 cups of flour.

**Formula used:**

Steps for multiplying whole numbers.

Step 1: Write down the factors such that the place values line up in columns.

Step 2: Multiply every digit of the multiplier with the multiplicand, starting with the units. Each multiplication gives a partial product whose unit digit appears under the same column that is the corresponding digit of the multiplier.

Step 3: Now in each column, add the digits of the partial products, starting with the unitâ€™s column on the right.

Steps for dividing whole numbers.

Step 1: Pick up the first group of digits that the divisor will divide into the dividend at least once. Divide and then place the partial quotient in that group over the last digit.

Step 2: Multiply the divisor by partial quotient and then place it under the first group and then subtract.

Step 3: Now from the divided, write down the next digit after the first group of digits.

Step 4: Repeat all the steps in the same sequence until all the digits in the dividend are brought down.

**Calculation:**

Consider the provided data,

Weight of flour bag is 5 pounds.

1-pound weighs similar to 4 cups.

Therefore, total number of cups that can be filled from a 5-pound bag will be,

Multiply the multiplier â€˜4â€™ with the multiplicand:

Therefore, total number of cups that can be filled from a 5-pound bag are 20.

One recipe requires 2 cups of flour.

And total cups of flour are 20
