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.
math word 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 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.
