Ken is a savvy shopper and has purchased four different types of nuts in order to create his own nutty concoction. He has 4.66 pounds of walnuts, 2.1 pounds of cashews, and 8 pounds of peanuts that he wants to mix together and divide equally among 18 bags.
In order to figure out how many pounds of peanuts or in each bag, we must first calculate the total weight of all the nuts Ken has bought: 4.66 + 2.1 + 8 = 14.76 lbs.
Next, we can divide 14.76 by 18 in order to know how heavy each individual bag should be: 14.76 ÷ 18 = 0.82 lbs per bag (rounded up)
Ken has 4.66 pounds of walnuts, 2.1 pounds of cashews, and 8 pounds of peanuts. he mixes them together and divides them equally among 18 bags. how many pounds of peanust or in each bag.
