- The following problem is from both the 2018 AMC 12B #1 and 2018 AMC 10B #1, so both problems redirect to this page.
Problem
Kate bakes a -inch by -inch pan of cornbread. The cornbread is cut into pieces that measure inches by inches. How many pieces of cornbread does the pan contain?
Solution 1
The area of the pan is = . Since the area of each piece is , there are pieces. Thus, the answer is .
Solution 2
By dividing each of the dimensions by , we get a grid which makes pieces. Thus, the answer is .
