    Horace need to buys 2.5 pounds of blueberries

    • Horace buys 2/4 pounds of blueberries
    • 48 ounce of blueberries needed for a pie
    • To determine how many pounds of blueberries that Horace need to buy, we have to convert ounces because this mathematical question is related to unit conversion.

    Further Explanation

    1 pounds = 16 ounces, therefore,

    3 pounds = 48 ounces (we multiply 16 and 3 = 48)

    To find how many pounds he need to by = 3 ounces – \frac{2}{4}

    = 3 – \frac{2}{4}

    = \frac{3}{1}\frac{2}{4} (4 is the smallest number can divide both denominator) therefore, we have

    = (4 x 3) – (1 x 2) / 4

    =  12 – 2 / 4

    = \frac{10}{4}

    = 2.5

    Thus, Horace buys 2.5 pounds of blueberries.

    So, 2/4 pounds of blueberries reduced is 1/2 pound of blueberries. There 16 ounces in a pound and 8 ounces in 1/2 a pound. He only bought 8 ounces of blueberries and he needs 48. Subtract 8 ounces that he already has from 48 ounces that he needs and get 40 ounces.
