Accepted Solution

A:

For this case we have to if Ali uses [tex]\frac {3} {8}[/tex] of 2 pounds of clay for a game of 4 bowls we have:[tex]\frac {3} {8} (2) = \frac {6} {8} = \frac {3} {4}[/tex]Thus, Ali uses [tex]2 * \frac {3} {8} = \frac {3} {4}[/tex]pounds of clay to make a game.If we want to know how many pounds of clay are used in each bowl, we must divide the previous result by 4, that is:[tex]\frac {2 * \frac {3} {8}} {4}[/tex]ANswer:Part A: [tex]2 * \frac {3} {8}[/tex]Part B: [tex]\frac {2 * \frac {3} {8}} {4}[/tex]
