They brought 65 kg of dried cranberries to the packing house. They made 150-gram and 200-gram packages from them. How many kilograms of cranberries did they use for the smaller 200 packages? How many 200 gram packages were there?

Correct answer:

a =  30 kg
n2 =  175

Step-by-step explanation:

m1=150 g kg=150/1000  kg=0.15 kg m2=200 g kg=200/1000  kg=0.2 kg n1=200  a=n1 m1=200 0.15=30 kg
m1 n1+m2 n2=65 0.15 200+0.2 n2=65  0.2n2=35  n2=175
