**Anonymous**, Sunday, October 14, 2012 at 1:06amLet female=x

male= 5/8+x

3 5/8 pounds is the same as 29/8 (this is the improper form, it's easier to write it this way).

x+5/8= 29/8

Subtract 5/8 on both sides (we do this to get the x by itself).

x= (29/8-5/8)= 24/8 which can be simplified down to 3

x=3

The male kitten weighs 3 pounds.

Hope this helps.
