Su wanted to make pancakes and needed 900 grams of flour, but she did not have any scales. She had a 700 grams bowl and a 500 grams bowl. How could she measure the amount she requires?

Answers for sheet # 35

Fill 700-grm bowl and transfer in 500-gram bowl. You are left with 200 grams in the 700-gram bowl. Transfer it in the other bowl. Repeat it one more time. 200 + 200 = 400 grams. Now fill up 500-gram bowl. Total is 400 + 500 = grams
