# A coffee mug can hold of 3/5 pint of water. How many mugs could be filled by 6 pints of water?

This is a fractional ratio problem. Six pints is $\left(\frac{30}{5}\right)$ pints. How many $\frac{3}{5}$ pints are in that amount? Divide -
$\left(\frac{30}{5}\right)$/$\left(\frac{3}{5}\right)$ = $\left(\frac{30}{5}\right)$*$\left(\frac{5}{3}\right)$ = $\left(\frac{30}{3}\right)$ = $10$.
CHECK: $10 \cdot \left(\frac{3}{5}\right) = \left(\frac{30}{5}\right) = 6$ Correct!
