A recipe for cupcakes calls for 10 cups of sugar. Brenda has already put in 5 7/10 cups. How many more cups does she need to put in?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Number of cups required = 10

Number of cups already put = 5 7/10=57/10

Number of cups she need to put = 10/1-5 7/10=(100-57)/10=43/10=4(3/10)

We see that

5 7/10 + 4 3/10=10

Number of cups she need to put = 10/1-5 7/10 should i read this as 10 divided by 1 minus 5 and 7/10? im so sorry to sound slow its just that math is not my strong area at all.

Don't worry, I'm very happy to work with you on this.

Your statement is absolutely correct

10/1 is read 10 divided by 1

5 7/10 is read as 5 and 7/10

Thanks so much for your help.
