French Fried Potatoes

May3

giphy-5

There are 20 potatoes in a 5 pound bag. A restaurant uses about 2 potatoes per order of french fries. They charge $0.95 for an order of fries.

How much money does the restaurant take in on a day they use 400 pounds of potatoes?

    $760 dollars is your answer because you would want to do $0.95 by 10 for each 2 potatoes a fry then multiply that by 20 to get the 400 pounds you would want to multiply that by 80 to get that 400 pounds.

    So you basically do this:
    20*5=100
    Then:
    100*0.95=95
    Next:
    95*400=
    $38000 in a day.

    First I divided: 20/5=4. So it’s 4 potatoes per pound. Then I multiplied: 400(4)=1600. So that’s how many fries were made. Then I divided again:1600/2=800.That’s how many orders were made. Finally I multiplied: 800(0.95)=760.

    So they made $760


  4. May 4th, 2015 at 4:28 pm      Reply treya2014 Says:

    To solve you have to do 400 divided by 2 which is 200. Next you have to do 200 times .95 which is 190. So the restaurant made $190 on that day by just french fries.

    to find the answer all you would have to do is multiply 400 by 0.95. then multiply that by 2 i think. then thats how you would find the answer.

    so the answer would be 760.00$ they would earn in one day with 400 pounds of potatoes.


  6. May 5th, 2015 at 11:11 am      Reply michelleca2014 Says:

    the answer is 79.6 because 400-2 is 398 and 398 /2 is 79.6

    the restaurant would make $38 dollars because to get 400 pounds of potatoes you have to do 80 times 5 and then divide 80 by 2 and multiply 40 by $.95 to get $38

    This is so mixed up in the sentences rawr
    rawr rawr rawr
    anywho, if its 20 potatoes in a 5lb bag, then we can divide to find how many potatoes in a 400lb bag
    Its quotient is 80 potatoes.
    so I came up with 2 coclusions
    1. Divide by 2, get 40, then multiply by 0.95 and get
    38 dollars
    2. Times 80 by 0.95 and get 76 dollars


  10. May 5th, 2015 at 5:02 pm      Reply emmabr2014 Says:

    well if you consider the following then you will understand that in this problem you have to divide to get the correct answer. so you have to divide 400 divided by 0.95 and the answer you should get would be 380

    what i did was 20potatoes over 5lbs then set up a ratio to find how many potatoes were in 400 pounds using the heart i got 1,600potatoes. because each order has two potatoes i divided 1600 by 2 and got 800 orders then i multiplyed each order by .95 cents and got a total of 760 dollars

    first I divided 400 by 5 and my answer was 82.
    than I had tow divide 0.95 by 82 and my real answer its 1.15 is my real answer that’s how much money the restaurant takes in one day

    So fist I divided 400 by 5 and got 80. Then I multiply 80 by 20 potatoes and got 1600. Then I dived 1600 by 2 because that how much there severing per order. Then I got 800 so i multiply 800 by $0.95 and got $760 dollars.

    So, if there are 20 potatoes in 5 pound bag, then you would have to divide 20 by 5, you would get 4 potatoes in a one pound bag. Since it takes 2 potatoes for an order of fries, you would divide for by 2 and get 2. You would then divide 400 by 2 and get 200. Then you would multiply 200 by $0.95 and get $195. The restaurant takes in $195 on a day they used 400 pounds of potatoes.

    The restaurant take in about $190. I got my answer by 400 divided by 2 which equals 200. then I multiplied 200 and .95 and I got 190.


  26. May 6th, 2015 at 6:19 pm      Reply Tristin2014 Says:

    First i divided 2 in to 20 then that equals 10,
    Then i times 10 buy $0.95.
    So now we know that there is $9.50 per 5 pound bag.
    Then you have to divid 5 in to 400 and that equals 80.
    So now we know that there are 80 bags.
    After that we will have to do $9.50 times 80 and then that would equal $760.00.

    to get the answer for what it would cost for 400 lbs. of potatoes is to multiply the amount of money it costs to buy one potato and multiply it by the amount of pounds of potatoes you have so you would multiply 0.95* 400=$380

    First I divided the 400 pounds of potatoes by five pound per bag to see how many bags there were, which was 80 bags than I multiplied the number of bags by the number of potatoes per bag (80 x 20 =1,600 potatoes). Then I divided the total number of potatoes by the number of potatoes per order (1600 /2=800 orders ). Finally I multiplied the number of orders by the price per order(800*.95=$760.00 ).

    The answer is $760. I got this by finding how much a 5 pound bag would be($9.50) and then I found out how many bags I would have for 400 pounds, and then I multiplied $9.50 by that number and got $760.

    The restaurant makes 760 dollars on a day the use 400 pound of potatoes. First I did 400 divided by 5 = 80 to find how many 5 pound bags of potatoes they used. Then, I did 80 x 20 = 1600 because there are 20 potatoes in a 5 pound bag and I wanted to find the total amount of potatoes. Then I did 1600 divided by 2 = 800 because they use 2 potatoes per serving of french fries and I wanted to find ut how many servings of french fries that is. Lastly, I did 800 x 0.95 = 760 to find the cost.

    if there is 2 potatos per order, and the price is $0.95. so, what you have to do is multiply 400 by 20 because 20 potatos are in 5 pounds. so 400 by 20 which is 8000 and then you multiply 8000 by $0.95 and you get your answer… your answer is $7600.

    The first things I would do is see how many potatoes orders are in the 400 pound of potatoes. There are 20 potatoes in a 5 pound bag so I would divide 400 by 5 to get 80 five pound bags. I would times the 80 bags by the 20 in each and get 1600 potatoes total. I would then divide the 2 potatoes per order and get 800 orders. I would multiply the 800 orders by .95 and get $760.

    for every 5 pound bag of potatoes the restaurant makes $9.50 because for every two potatoes it cost $0.95 and since the potatoes are in pares you multiply 10 by $0.95 and get $9.50 for a 5 pounds bag of potatoes. Now they want me to find how much money a 400 pound bag of potatoes is so i would divide 400 by 5 and get 80 and 80 multipled by $9.50 is 760.

    If each order is 2 potatoes then they can make 10 orders from each 5 lb bag if there are 20 potatoes in each 5 lb bag. 20 / 2 = 10 orders.
    If each order costs $.95 then each bag makes 10 x .95 = $9.50
    If they use 400 lbs of potatoes that is 400 lbs/ 5 lbs per bag = 80 bags. If each bag makes $9.50 then 80 bags x 9.50 = $760.00 made for that day.

    First what i did was, i fugured out that in every pound theres 4 potatoes. I did that by by doing 20/5 which equals 4. Then i multiplied 400 by 4 because the restuarant wants to know how much they make with 400 pounds. That equaled 1,600. Then i divided 1,600 and 2 because every order of fries 2 potatoes are needed.that equaled 800. Lastly i multiplied 800 by 0.95 because thats how much an order costs. So, therefore the restuarant makes $760 a day just with 400 pouns of potatoes.

    The restaurant takes in $ 760.00 on a day they use 400 pounds of potatoes. First I made the proportion 20 over 5 equals x over 400. X is the amount of potatoes there were for 400 pounds. I solved the proportion and I got x= 1,600 potatoes in 400 pounds. Since every order uses 2 potatoes for each order of french fries, I divided 1,600 by 2 and I got 800. They had about 800 orders of french fries. Since each order of french fries costs $0.95, I multiplied 800 by $0.95. I ended up with $760.00.

    The restaurant takes in $760 on a day.

Then I multiplied 9.5 and 20 and got 190 which means every 100lbs = 190. Finally I added 190 four times because 100 four times is 400 then I got the answer $760.

    The answer I got was $760. I found it by finding how much a 5 pound bag costs (which is 9.50) and then I found out how many bags I would have for 400 pounds, so then I multiplied $9.50 by that number and got $760.

    I think they would get $76.00. I got this by first dividing 400 by 5 and I got 80. I then took 80 and multiplied it by 20 and got 160 and I multiplied that by .95 and got 76.00.

    $380 for 400 pounds potatoes. I got this by multiplying 400 and .95 and i got 380.
