Step 1
As each container is filled with 3 pounds of grapes. Therefore 20 containers with 3 pounds in each container have total 60 pounds of grapes.
1 container contains 3 pounds
20 containers contain 20×3=60 pounds
Step 2
Now to write a mathematical model for this word problem let P be the number of containers. The mathematical model is as:
1 container contains 3 pounds
20 containers contain 20×3=60 pounds
P containers contain 3P pounds of grapes
