# Glucose is a common type of sugar. One glucose molecule is made up of 24 atoms. 1/4 of the atoms are carbon, 1/2 are hydrogen atoms, and 1/4 are oxygen atoms.

Part A: How many oxygen atoms are there in 50 atoms?

Part B:Explain how you found your answer for Part A

## Part A: How many oxygen atoms are there in 50 atoms?

=======================

Huh ?

perhaps you mean in 50 molecules?

I will assume that

1/4 * 24 = 6 Oxygen atoms / molecule

6*50 = 300 in 50 of them

If there are 6 in one then there are 300 in 50

## Part A: To find the number of oxygen atoms in 50 atoms, we need to first determine the total number of oxygen atoms in one glucose molecule, and then divide it by the total number of atoms in the molecule.

Given that 1/4 of the atoms in a glucose molecule are oxygen atoms, we can calculate the number of oxygen atoms in one molecule by multiplying the total number of atoms (24) by 1/4:

Number of oxygen atoms in one molecule = 24 x 1/4 = 6

Now, to find the number of oxygen atoms in 50 atoms, we can set up a proportion:

Number of oxygen atoms in 50 atoms / Total number of atoms in 50 atoms = Number of oxygen atoms in one molecule / Total number of atoms in one molecule

Let's call the number of oxygen atoms in 50 atoms as "x".

x / 50 = 6 / 24

To solve for x, we can cross-multiply and divide:

x = (6 x 50) / 24 = 300 / 24 = 12.5

Therefore, there are 12.5 oxygen atoms in 50 atoms. Since we cannot have a fractional number of atoms, we round down to the nearest whole number.

Part B: I found the answer for Part A by first determining the number of oxygen atoms in one glucose molecule by multiplying the total number of atoms in the molecule (24) by 1/4 (as given in the question). Then, I set up a proportion to find the number of oxygen atoms in 50 atoms by comparing it to the number of oxygen atoms in one molecule.

## Part A: To find the number of oxygen atoms in 50 atoms, we need to calculate 1/4 of 50 atoms.

Part B: To find the number of oxygen atoms, we first need to determine the total number of atoms in one glucose molecule. According to the information given, a glucose molecule is made up of 24 atoms.

Next, we need to determine the proportion of oxygen atoms in a glucose molecule. The question states that 1/4 of the atoms in a glucose molecule are oxygen atoms. Therefore, to find the number of oxygen atoms, we need to calculate 1/4 of 24.

First, calculate 1/4 of 24:

1/4 * 24 = 24/4 = 6

So, there are 6 oxygen atoms in one glucose molecule.

Finally, to find the number of oxygen atoms in 50 atoms, we need to calculate 1/4 of 50:

1/4 * 50 = 50/4 = 12.5

Since we cannot have a fraction of an atom, the answer would be rounded to the nearest whole number. Therefore, there are approximately 13 oxygen atoms in 50 atoms.
