You've left out some important information. How much food does each dog eat a day?

What do you estimate the answer to be?
Now let's figure it out.
10 dogs at 2 pounds a day = ?
7 days times the total number of pounds the 10 dogs eat = ?
Finally, divide the number of pounds the 10 dogs eat in a week by 5 pounds to find the number of bags needed.
