    Mel needs to measure 4 3/4 cups of flour. The only measuring cup he has measures 1/4 cup. How Many 1/4 cups of flour should he use?

    Hello,

    There are (4) 1/4 cups in a cup.

    (4) cups is (16) total 1/4 cups.

    3/4 cups is (3) more.

    16+3=19

    There are (19) 1/4 cups in 4 3/4 cups.
