    Answer:

    Weight of the flour = 5/4 pounds

    Number of cups added = 4 cups

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Weight of the bowl = 1½ pounds

    Total weight of the bowl and the flour = 2¾ pounds

    Weight of the flour = Total weight of the bowl and the flour – Weight of the bowl

    = 2¾ pounds – 1½ pounds

    = 11/4 – 3/2

    = 11-6/4

    = 5/4 pounds

    Weight of the flour = 5/4 pounds

    If each cup of flour weighs 5/16 pound, how many cups of flour does he add

    Number of cups added = 5/4 ÷ 5/16

    = 5/4 × 16/5

    = (5*16)/(4*5)

    = 80/20

    = 4

    Number of cups added = 4 cups
