aling marciana bought 5 ⅔ kilogram of pork for mang buenvenido’s birthday. she separated 2 ½ kilograms for adobo then she equally divided the rest for sinigang and pork chop. how many kilograms does she cook in sinigang?

**Answer:**

Its 2 1/3

**Step-by-step explanation:**

5×2/3-2×1/2

its reduce calculate

=10/3 -1

=7/3

then you need to lowest tge term and that would be

2 1/3

**Answer:**

1 7/12 kg of pork

**Step-by-step explanation:**

5 2/3 is being subtracted to 2 1/2 because aling marcia separated it for adobo and divided equally the remaining to pork chop and sinigang. So the question is the pork used in sinigang the answer on 5 2/3 subtracted to 2 1/2 will be divided to 2. Then you will get the answer. The following are the solutions:

Choose any of the solutions

Solution 1

5 2/3 – 2 1/2

make it similar fraction

= 5 4/6 – 2 3/6

divide the answer by 2 since it is equally divided

= 3 1/6 ÷ 2

= 3÷2 + 1/6 ÷ 2/1

since it is dividing a fraction invert 2 thus it become 1/2 then change division to multiplication

= 3/2 + 1/6 x 1/2

then multiply

= 3/2 + 1/12

make it similar fraction to preform operation

= 18/12 + 1/12

then add change improper fraction to mixed number

= 19/12 or 1 7/12

Solution 2

change mixed number into improper thus 5 2/3 become 17/3 and 2 1/2 became 5/2.

17/3 – 5/2

make it similar fraction

= 34/6 – 15/6

then subtract

divide it by 2 since it is divided into 2 (which sinigang and pork chop)

= 19/6 ÷ 2

since it is dividing a fraction invert 2 thus it become 1/2 then change division to multiplication

= 19/6 x 1/2

then multiply

change improper fraction to mixed number

= 19/12 or 1 7/12
