Hi i can help!

Answer there would be 9 and 1/2 servings in the box of cereal

Step-by-step explanation:

You need to divide the total amount of cereal in the box by serving size. This would be 12 2/3 divided by 1 1/3

We can write each mixed number as an improper fraction first before we divide 12 2/3 = 38/3 and 1 1/3 = 4/3

Now divide 38/3 bye 4/3. Recall that dividing by a fraction is accomplished by multiplying by the reciprocal of the divisor: 38/3 * 3/4 = 114/12 = 38/4 OR 19/2 Also 19/2 is equivalent to 9 and 1/2.

Answer: There would be 9 and 1/2 servings in the box of cereal.

Hope this helped!!
