5. Mary’s father harvested 2 150 mangoes on Monday and 2 350 on Tuesday.

He divided the mangoes among his 10 children. How many mangoes did

each child get?

**Answer:**

**Step-by-step explanation:**

1. 12 567 seats – 120 not occupied = seats were occupied

2. dress originally costs P 980.00 x 35% = 343

new price = 980 – 343 = P 637

3. 4cm x 1m / 100m = 0.04m

10 m / 0.04m = 2500 m

4. 3/4 kg of corn bits

repacked this into 1/8 kg

3/4 divide 1/8 = 24/4 = 6/1 or 6 packs

5. 2 150 mangoes on Monday

2 350 on Tuesday

2150+2350 = 4500/10 = 450 mangoes did each child
