Engage NY Eureka Math 5th Grade Module 6 Lesson 24 Answer Key

Question 1.
Pat’s Potato Farm grew 490 pounds of potatoes. Pat delivered $$\frac{3}{7}$$ of the potatoes to a vegetable stand. The owner of the vegetable stand delivered $$\frac{2}{3}$$ of the potatoes he bought to a local grocery store, which packaged half of the potatoes that were delivered into 5-pound bags. How many 5-pound bags did the grocery store package?
Weight of potatoes grown in pat farm = 490 pounds
Weight of potatoes pat delivered to vegetable stand = $$\frac{3}{7}$$ × 490 = 210 pounds .
Weight of potatoes vegetable stand owner to local grocery store = $$\frac{2}{3}$$  × 210 = 140 pounds .
Weight of potatoes local grocery store packed in 5 – pound bags = half of the potatoes = 140 / 2 = 70 pounds .
Number of 5-pound bags did the grocery store packed = 70 / 5 = 14 bags .
