For a period of time as an alligator grows, its mass is proportional to the cube of its length. When the alligator's length changes by 15.8%, its mass increases by 17.3kg. Find its mass at the end of this process.

  • Math -

    mass=k*length^3
    mass+17.3=k(length*1.158)^3
    k*length^3=k(length^3 ( 1.55)-17.3
    .55K*length^3=17.3
    mass*.55=17.3
    massfinalthen=17.3/.55 + 17.3
