Q:
# the bakery bought 4 bags of flour containing 3.5 kg each. 0.475 kg of flour is needed to make a batch of muffins, and 0.65 kg is needed to make a loaf of bread.if 4 batches of muffins and 5 loaves of bread are backed, how much flour will be left? give your answer in kilograms.

Accepted Solution

A:

The left out amount of floor is [tex]\boxed{\bf8.85\,\,{\text{kilogram}}}[/tex].
Further explanation:
The weight of one bag of flour is 3.5 kg.
The bakery bought 4 bags of flour.
Therefore, the total weight of 4 bags is calculated as follows:
[tex]4\times\left({3.5\,\,{\text{kg}}}\right)=14\,\,{\text{kg}}[/tex]
The weight of flour needed for a batch of muffins is 0.475 kg.
Therefore, the weight of flour needed for 4 batches of muffins is calculated as follows:
[tex]4\times\left({0.475\,\,{\text{kg}}}\right)=1.9\,\,{\text{kg}}[/tex]
The weight of flour needed for a loaf of bread is 0.65 kg.
Therefore, the weight of flour needed for 5 loaves of bread is calculated as follows:
[tex]5\times\left({0.65\,\,{\text{kg}}}\right)=3.25\,\,{\text{kg}}[/tex]
So, the total weight of floor used in the process of making muffins and loaves of bread is calculated as follows:
[tex]3.25\,\,{\text{kg+}}1.9\,\,{\text{kg}}=5.15\,\,{\text{kg}}[/tex]
Now, the weight of floor that is left out in the bag is calculated as follows:
[tex]14\,\,{\text{kg}}-5.15\,\,{\text{kg}}=8.85\,\,{\text{kg}}[/tex]
Thus, the left out amount of floor is [tex]\boxed{\bf8.85\,\,{\text{kilogram}}}[/tex].
