4. He can make 6 packs of corn bits

5. Each child got 450 mangoes

**Step-by-step explanation:**

1.) 12, 567 – 120 = 12,447

2.) 980 x 35% = 343 980 – 343 = 637

3.) Step 1: Convert

1m = 100cm

10 x 100 = 1000cm

Step 2: Divide

1000cm / 4cm = 250

4.) 3/4 / 1/8

= 3/4 x 8

= 6

5.) 2,150 + 2,350 = 4,500

4,500 / 10 = 450
