Math problem of the week

Page

Lots of great answers last week:). Mrs. Drouin solved the problem almost the same way I did. I had if 1 = 60 minutes the 7+60=8 because 7 hours plus 60 minutes = 8 hours.

This week we venture into fruit. As always let me know how you solve the problem. Good luck!

****Three watermelons and two cantaloupes weigh 32 pounds. Four watermelons and three cantaloupes weigh 44 pounds. All watermelons weigh the same and all cantaloupes weigh the same. What is the weight of two watermelons and one cantaloupe?
