Madeline’s favorite orange juice is sold in half-gallon containers. Each month, Madeline estimates that she purchases 7 containers of juice
One container holds a half of a gallon. She buys seven containers in one month. How many gallons is that? That’s half gallon containers bought seven times. (1/2 x 7)
the answer is 3.5 because you just take the number of containers and multiply it by 0.5 because the juice is sold in half-gallon containers or 0.5 gallon containers.
