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?

deff. not 3rd grade.. but anyways..

say tiger= giraffe-4inches

girafee= 2 x ape

ape= 6 inches

therefore,

giraffe= 2 x 6= 12 inches

therefore,

tiger= 12 inches - 4 inches =8 inches
