**Ms. Sue**, Monday, November 30, 2009 at 8:07pmThis looks like a math problem.

- math word problem -
**PsyDAG**, Wednesday, December 2, 2009 at 10:38amApparently 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 24-hour 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.
