If Amelia drinks 35 glasses of juice per week, then how many glasses of juice per day would that be on average?

We are told that Amelia drinks 35 glasses in one week. As there were seven days in a week, this is the same as 35 glasses in seven days. We need to calculate how much she would drink in one day or per day. To keep a fraction equivalent, we need to divide the numerator and denominator by the same value, in this case, by seven. 35 divided by seven is equal to five. We can, therefore, conclude that Amelia’s consumption is five glasses per day on average.
