###### Question:

## Answers

He wont have any to his self

32 pieces.

75 plus 75 plus 75 = 225.

225 divided by 7 people = 32.143...rounded down is 32!

The answer is only one piece of candy

Step-by-step explanation:

Firstly, we have to determine the total amount of pieces of candy:

There are three bags with 75 pieces in each one, so the total is:

[tex]75+75+75=225[/tex]

Then, in order to determine the amount of pieces of candy for every friend,

we have to divide the total amount by 7, where the remainder of the division is the answer.

[tex]\frac{225}{7}=32*7+1[/tex]

Remainder=1

Finally, every friend of Scott receive 32 pieces of candy evenly and Scott is left with only one piece of candy.

How many pieces of candy total? (3 bags)(75 pieces/bag) = 225 pieces

How many pieces to each friend? 225 pieces / 7 friends = 32 pieces each, with 1 piece left over for himself.

The answer will be 75 divided by 7.

I know this because if Scott wants to give the same amount of candy to seven friends, he will have to divide the total amount of candy by the number of friends.

75/7 is 10 r 5. (We can solve this in our head because we know 7x10 is 70 and 70+5 is 75.)

The remainder is the amount he will have left.

R=5

Scott will have 5 pieces left.

Hope I helped! ;)
