Weigh in total

I put 3/5 kg of grapes into a box which is 1/4kg in weight. How many kilograms do the grapes and the box weigh in total?

Result

m =  0.85 kg

Solution:

m1=35=0.6 kg m2=14=0.25 kg  m=m1+m2=0.6+0.25=1720=0.85 kgm_{1}=\dfrac{ 3 }{ 5 }=0.6 \ \text{kg} \ \\ m_{2}=\dfrac{ 1 }{ 4 }=0.25 \ \text{kg} \ \\ \ \\ m=m_{1}+m_{2}=0.6+0.25=\dfrac{ 17 }{ 20 }=0.85 \ \text{kg}



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
