Hi
I am trying to help my 4th grade daughter with homework and I am stuck with this question. Please help and explain how you got the answer.
Thanks
Jill's fish weighs 8 times as much as her parakeet. Together, the pets weigh 63 ounces together. How much does the fish weigh?
A 7 ounces
B 49 ounces
C 55 Ounces
D 56 ounces

math 
Ms. Sue,
8x + x = 63
9x = 63
x = 63/9
x = 7 ounces 
math 
EM,
Thank you for explaining this to us.

The correct answer is 56oz. Take 63 and divided it by 9. That will give 7oz. So 8x7 give you 56.

Kaylee,
A.7 ounces

math 
luke,
8x7=56. 637=56 a 7 oz.

math 
Ashley,
The correct answer is 56 oz. Because if u divide 9 and 63 it will be 7 then if u multiply 8x7 equals 56oz.

math 
Kari,
8x+1x=63
So 8+1=9
So 9x=63
So x=63/9 
math 
But face,
56
