Dean works with baby animals at a Zoo. This week he measured a giraffe, an ape and a tiger. The tiger had grown 4 inches less than the giraffe. The giraffe had grown twice as much as the ape. The baby ape had grown 6 inches since it was measured the last time.
How many inches had the tiger grown?
show your work and explain your answer.
