math question : an adult tiger can eat about 95 pounds of meat in one week living in a zoo. About how many pounds does it eat in one day?
You know that there are 7 days in one week. The total amount of food the tiger eats in 1 week is equal to how much he eats in 1 day x 7 days. So 95 = 7x, where x is the #of lbs of food eaten in 1 day. Divide both sides by 7 and you get x = 13.57. So the tiger eats about 13.6 lbs of meat in 1 day
