One week, Mrs. Peterson went to her health club on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Each day she went to the club, she jogged on the treadmill for 3/5 hour, lifted weights for 1/4 hour, and then cooled down by stretching for 1/4 hour. On Saturday, she rode her bike for 3/4 hour. How many hours did she spend riding and bike and exercising at the health club that week?

Mrs. Hansen raises German Shepherd puppies. She kept track of the weight of one of the puppies for 4 months. The puppy gained 7 1/4 pounds the first month, 10 1/4 pounds the second month, 8 1/4 pounds the third month, and 10 1/2 pounds the fourth month. What was the puppy's average weight gain per month?
