crackers come in packages of 8. jack ate 52 crackers. how many whole packages did he eat
1 pack contains 8 crackers
x packs contain 52 crackers
x/1 = 52/8 = 6.5
He ate 6 and a half packages.
52 divided by 8 is 6.5 so because the question is how many whole packages did he eat the answer would be 6
To find out how many whole packages of crackers Jack ate, you can divide the total number of crackers he ate (52) by the number of crackers in each package (8).
Here's how you can calculate it step by step:
1. Divide the total number of crackers Jack ate by the number of crackers in each package: 52 ÷ 8.
2. Perform the division: 52 ÷ 8 = 6.5.
Since Jack cannot eat a fraction of a package, we need to round the answer to the nearest whole number. In this case, it should be rounded down because Jack cannot partially consume a package.
Therefore, Jack ate a total of 6 whole packages of crackers.
