tom has 21/2 of pints of juice and has juice glasses that hold 5 fluid ounces . how many glasses can he fill with juice?

Hi again Jackeline;

The quantity of juice is presented in pints.

The capacity of the glasses is presented in ounces.

We need our units aligned.

Juice...2 1/2 pints

Glasses...5 ounces

2 1/2 pints(16 ounces/1 pint)

Let's cancel units...

2 1/2 pints(16 ounces/1 pint)

2 1/2(16 ounces)

40 ounces

Juice...40 ounces

Glasses...5 ounces

5 ounces(x)=40 ounces

x=quantity of glasses

5 ounces(x)=40 ounces

5x=40

Let's divide both sides by 5...

[5(x)]/5=40/5

x=8
