On Saturday, a local hamburger shop sold a combined total of 448 hamburgers and cheeseburgers. The number of cheeseburgers sold was three times the number of hamburgers sold. How many hamburgers were sold on Saturday?


  1. Answer:


    Step-by-step explanation:

    1. Divide 448 into four to get an equal portion. You should get 112. This works out because cheese burgers were three times more than hamburgers therefore three portions of 448 meaning the total no. of portions is 4.
    2. To check if the answer’s correct you can multiple 112 by the 3 portions of cheeseburgers (112×3) and you will get 336.
    3. Add this 336 to the portion of hamburgers (i.e. 112) and you will realise that you end uo back at 448. This means that your answer is correct.
