Ques 1:

A box of nuts cost 44 cents per pound. There are 2,600 pieces in a 100 pound box. How much does it cost for 1,960 nuts?

I divided 100 into 2,600 which gave me 26 pieces per #

Then I divided 26 into 1,960 which is 75.38# for 1,960

Then I took .44 X 75.38 and got $33.1672, rounded off to $33.17

Ques 2:

An Airplane goes 500 miles in 1 minute. How long does it take to get to 33,000 feet?

The answer I came up with this is 6.6 minutes

Did I figure these out correctly? Your help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, in advance
