44 set of spoons- 420-159=261. 261/6=43.5 round it to 44

They need 420 spoons, right?

But they already have 159.

So they are missing 261.

The spoons on sale, are 6 spoons per set.

So you are gonna divide 261 by 6.

Which gives her 43.50 sets of spoons

But you have to round that up to 44 sets of spoons.

(sorry if that was confusing or it didn’t make sense i’m not that good at math but i try lol.)
