Chole and ingrid are packing boxes with books They have 238 books Each box will fit 8 books Chole says 29 boxes is enough to pack all the books ingrid thinks they need 30 boxes Explain who is correct show work

2 Answer

  • If you do 238 devided by 8 its 29.75 so they need 30 boxes.
  • 238/8 = 29.75

    Ingrid is correct because if you use 29 boxes, you'll have a remainder so 30 boxes is the best option so nothing will be left behind. Round 29.75 and you'll get 30.
