    Answer:

    12

    Step-by-step explanation:

      Mass of apples = number of containers × mass in each container

                         6 lb = No of containers × ½ lb

    No of containers = 6/½  

    To divide a whole number by a fraction, invert the fraction and change divide to multiply.

    6/½ = 6 × 2/1

    Multiply the numerator by the whole number.

    6 × 2/1 = 12/1

    Simplify the fraction.

    12/1 = 12

    Elise can make 12 containers of applesauce.
