⅓ of them to Mary. How many picture cards does she have now?
In this problem Jennifer had 18 pictures and she gave ⅓ to here friend.Now we need to find how many pictures she had now.To solve this problem we have to find 1/3 part of original number of pictures.That is (1/3) of 18.And we have to subtract this from the original number of pictures 18.This will e the final answer.
No of picture cards does Jennifer have = 18

Mr.John weights 80 kg. His son is ⅗ as heavy. Find their total weight.
Here John's weight is 80 kg and his son is ⅗ as heavy.Now we need to find the total weight.For that we have to add the weight of John with the weight of his son.
Weight of John = 80 kg

= 48 kg
Total weight = Weight of John + Weight of his son
= 80 kg + 48 kg
= 128 kg
