Question: Anna builds a snowman out of 3 big snowballs. The first snowball weighs 48 pounds. The second snowball weighs 1/2 as much as the first. The third snowball weighs 2/3 as much as the second. How much does the snowman weigh in total?
Answer: 88 pounds
Solution: The first snowball weighs 48 pounds. The second snowball weighs 1/2 × 48 = 24 pounds. The third snowball weighs 2/3 × 24 = 16 pounds. So, the snowman weighs 48 + 24 + 16 = 88 pounds altogether.
