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.
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
8x + x = 63
9x = 63
x = 63/9
x = 7 ounces
Thank you for explaining this to us.
I still don't get it. Can somebody else explain?
The correct answer is 56oz. Take 63 and divided it by 9. That will give 7oz. So 8x7 give you 56.
8x7=56. 63-7=56 a 7 oz.
The correct answer is 56 oz. Because if u divide 9 and 63 it will be 7 then if u multiply 8x7 equals 56oz.
