Three students performed a science experiment using salt and a beaker. The beaker contained 530.2 grams of salt before the experiment started. During the experiment, each of the 3 students removed 47.36 grams of salt from the beaker. How much salt in grams was left in the beaker at the end of the experiment

Accepted Solution

Answer:388.12 gramsStep-by-step explanation:There is a total of 530.2 grams to begin with.Each student removes 47.36 grams; since there are 3 students, this means that47.36(3) = 142.08 grams removed.This leaves us with530.2-142.08 = 388.12 grams.
