Question

Honey baked a cake. She used $$4\cfrac{5}{8}$$ cups of flour and $$3\cfrac{1}{8}$$ cups of sugar. How much more flour than sugar did Honey use?


Solution

Extra flour used = Flour used - Sugar used 
                       $$ = 4\dfrac{5}{8}-3\dfrac{1}{8}$$ 
                       $$ = \dfrac{37}{8}-\dfrac{25}{8}=\dfrac{12}{8}$$ 
                       $$ = \dfrac{3}{2} cups$$
                         $$ = 1\dfrac{1}{2}cups.$$
