Sir Toffie

One hot afternoon, Sir Toffie went to his backyard to plant monggo. In his seed box, he found out that different seeds like monggo, pechay, eggplant, and tomatoes were accidentally mixed because of the strong wind. He sieved the mixed seeds and was able to get 4 ¾ scoops of monggo seeds. But he needs to separate bad seeds from good seeds through visual inspection. After testing he is able to collect 4 ¼ scoops of good seeds. Sir Toffie wanted to plant it in a seed box. How many seed box can be used if each box needs ¼ scoops of monggo seeds?

Correct answer:

n =  17

Step-by-step explanation:

a=414=4+14=4 4+14=174=4.25 b=14=0.25  n=a/b=4.25/0.25=17
