**Step 1:**

Packages used in a week = $\frac{3}{8}$

Number of weeks = $7\frac{1}{2}$ = $\frac{15}{2}$

**Step 2:**

Number of packages of gum used in $7\frac{1}{2}$ weeks = $7\frac{1}{2} \times \frac{3}{8}$

= $\frac{15}{2} \times \frac{3}{8}$ = $\frac{45}{16}$ = $2\frac{13}{16}$

**Step 1:**

Amount of potatoes used = $4\frac{1}{6}$ = $\frac{25}{6}$ pounds

**Step 2:**

Amount of meat used = $\frac{2}{9}$ of $4\frac{1}{6}$ pounds

= $\frac{2}{9} \times 4\frac{1}{6}$ pounds

= $\frac{2}{9} \times \frac{25}{6}$ = $\frac{25}{27}$ pounds

**Step 1:**

Number of pieces of wood stacked = $4\frac{1}{3}$ = $\frac{13}{3}$

Length of each wood piece = $\frac{2}{3}$ feet

**Step 2:**

Length of pieces of wood stacked = $4\frac{1}{3} \times \frac{2}{3}$

= $\frac{13}{3} \times \frac{2}{3}$ = $\frac{26}{9}$ = $2\frac{8}{9}$ feet

**Step 1:**

Number of boxes of paper used per day = $2\frac{1}{4}$ = $\frac{9}{4}$

Number of days = 7

**Step 2:**

Number of boxes used in 7 days = $7 \times 2\frac{1}{4}$

= $\frac{7}{1} \times \frac{9}{4}$ = $\frac{63}{4}$ = $15\frac{3}{4}$

**Step 1:**

Number of windows cleaned in 1 hour = $2\frac{1}{3}$ = $\frac{7}{3}$

Number of hours = $\frac{3}{8}$

**Step 2:**

Number of windows cleaned in $\frac{3}{8}$ hour = $\frac{3}{8} \times 2\frac{1}{3}$

= $\frac{3}{8} \times \frac{7}{3}$ = $\frac{7}{8}$ window

**Step 1:**

Weight of a bag of walnuts = $5\frac{1}{2}$ = $\frac{11}{2}$ pounds

Weight of one serving = $\frac{1}{6}$ pound

**Step 2:**

Number of servings per bag = $5\frac{1}{2} \div \frac{1}{6}$

= $\frac{11}{2} \div \frac{1}{6}$ = $\frac{11}{2} \times \frac{6}{1}$ = $33$

**Step 1:**

Number of bags of potatoes used = $1\frac{1}{3}$ = $\frac{4}{3}$

Number of persons who ate = $6$

**Step 2:**

Amount of potatoes eaten by each person = $1\frac{1}{3} \div 6$

= $\frac{4}{3} \div \frac{6}{1}$= $\frac{4}{3} \times \frac{1}{6}$ = $\frac{2}{9}$ bag

**Step 1:**

Number of cartons of candles = $4\frac{2}{3}$ = $\frac{14}{3}$

Number of cartons sold per day = $\frac{3}{8}$

**Step 2:**

Number of days it would take to sell all candles = $4\frac{2}{3} \div \frac{3}{8}$

= $\frac{14}{3} \div \frac{3}{8}$ = $\frac{14}{3} \times \frac{8}{3}$ = $1\frac{12}{9}$

= $12\frac{4}{9}$ days

**Step 1:**

Number of cups of sugar used = $4\frac{1}{3}$ = $133$ cups

Number of glasses = $6$

**Step 2:**

Number of cups of sugar used per glass = $4\frac{1}{3} \div 6$

= $\frac{13}{3} \div \frac{6}{1}$ = $\frac{13}{3} \times \frac{1}{6}$

= $\frac{13}{18}$ cup

**Step 1:**

Amount of leftover food = $3\frac{2}{3}$ = $\frac{11}{3}$ pounds

Number of employees = $4$

**Step 2:**

Amount of food per employee = $3\frac{2}{3} \div 4$

= $\frac{11}{3} \div \frac{4}{1}$ = $\frac{11}{3} \times \frac{1}{4}$

= $\frac{11}{12}$ pound
