Q:
# Write a word problem that can be solved by multiplying a whole number and a fraction. Include the solution.

Accepted Solution

A:

You may use the fraction for a price, and the integer for the number of objects bought.For example: "An apple costs 1/2 of a dollar. If you buy 16 apples, how much will you spend?"The answer is given by multiplying the unit cost of the apple and the total number of apples bought:[tex] \dfrac{1}{2}\cdot 16 = \dfrac{16}{2} = 8 [/tex]
