## Basic College Mathematics (9th Edition)

We know that each package of chicken nuggets weighs 10.5 ounces and has 15 nuggets. To find out the weight of each nugget, we divide: $~~~~~~~~0.7$ $15\overline{)10.5}$ $~~~~~~\underline{10~5}$ $~~~~~~~~~~~0$ Therefore, each nugget weighs 0.7 ounces. We know that Nadia can eat 3.5 ounces. To find out the number of nuggets she can eat, we divide again: $0.7\overline{)3.5}$ We move the decimal place one point to the right to simplify the division: $~~~~~~5$ $7\overline{)35}$ $~~~~\underline{35}$ $~~~~~~~0$ Therefore, Nadia can eat 5 nuggets.
