How much is one pounds of hot dogs?
Anywhere from 10 to 4 hot dogs depending on size and product.
Americans purchase 350 million pounds of hot dogs at retail stores, or equivalent to 9 billion hot dogs. But the actual number of hot dogs consumed by Americans is probably much larger. It is difficult to calculate the number of hot dogs Americans may eat at sporting events, local picnics and carnivals. One estimate says Americans consume 20 billion hot dogs a year - more than twice the retail sales figures.
The 158 fourth graders from the Glenwood School are going on a picnicIf there are 8 hot-dogs in a package how many packages are needed for each student to have two hot-dogs?
Since each student needs 2 hot dogs, first double 158. That means you'll need 316 hot dogs. If the hot dogs come in packages of 8, divide 316 by 8. You will need 40 packages of hot dogs. That will give you 320 hot dogs, which will be 4 extra. Maybe the teachers would like one each! So the answer is 40 packages.
