Ronald has a goldfish. His goldfish weights 12 lbs. If Ronald feeds the gold fish 2 ounces of food every hour and the fish gains 2 ounces each hour,how many pounds would ronalds goldfish weight in 5 days?How many lbs of food does the goldfish eat in a week?

This looks like a math problem.

Apparently the fish gains that same amount of weight as the food that is eaten. It seems odd that the fish will be fed every single hour during the 24hour day, but that is the assumption I will make.
16 ounces = 1 lb.
15 + (5 * 24 * 2/16) = weight in lbs. after 5 days
7 * 24 * 2/16 = lbs. of food eaten in 7 days
I hope this helps.
