1) Zoe's town April = 5 7/8 inches May = 2 1/8 inches less than in April 5 7/8 ⇒ ((5*8)+7)/8 = 47/8 2 1/8 ⇒ ((2*8)+1)/8 = 17/8 47/8 - 17/8 = 30/8 ⇒ 3 6/8 ⇒ 3 3/4 inches rainfall in May. April rainfall : 5 7/8 inches May rainfall : 3 3/4 inches Greatest Prime number less than 50 is 47. So, 47 students plus 3 teachers. There is a total of 50 people going on the trip. 1,354 ounces of paint ÷ 6 ounces per jar = 225.66 jars or 226 jars
