Answer to Friday's problem: 1 head of cabbage will balance with 6 ½ tomatoes. If 3 lemons balance with 1 ½ tomatoes, then 1 lemon is equal in weight to ½ tomato. To find out how many tomatoes balance with the cabbage, subtract the equivalent of a lemon, or half a tomato, from each side.
Pam bought 50 kg of sugar yesterday. She used 10 kg of sugar for making cotton candies. What fraction of sugar is left?

I think the answer would be 40k because if you subtract 50k-10k it would be 40k.

I think it is 40k because you would subtract 50k-10k and get 40k.

I think it is 40 because she had 50 kg. But then she used 10 kg for cotton candy. So 50-10= 40
