If 20 female Kodiak grizzly bears produce 50 cubs every 4 years, how many years will it take 30 female grizzlies to produce 100 cubs? Assume a constant rate of cubs per grizzly per year. Round up to the nearest whole number of years.

 

600 gallons of fuel was enough energy for the company to assemble 20 pipes in 10 days Then, 400 more gallons of fuel were added so that more pipes could be produced. How many pipes could they now produce in 11 days? Assume a constant rate of gallons per pipe per day. Round down to the nearest pipe.

600 gallons of fuel was enough energy for the company to assemble 20 pipes in 10 days Then, 400 more gallons of fuel were added so that more pipes could be produced. How many pipes could they now produce in 11 days? Assume a constant rate of gallons per pipe per day. Round down to the nearest pipe.

 

 

20/10 =  2 pipes  per day could be produced by 600/10 =  60 gal of fuel

So....30 gal of fuel will produce one pipe every day

 

So when 400 gallons  of fuel are added we now have 1000 gallons

 

So........1000/11 =  the number  of gallons available in one  day

 

So   [ 1000 / 11 ]  / 30  =   3.03 pipes per day can  now be produced in one day

 

So   11 * 3.03  =    33.33  pipes can be produced in  11 days  =    33 pipes

I tried that. My teacher said its incorrect

Try this:

 

[1,000 / 600] * [11 / 10] ==P / 20, solve for P

 

P ==36 2/3 ==36 pipes.

If 20 female Kodiak grizzly bears produce 50 cubs every 4 years, how many years will it take 30 female grizzlies to produce 100 cubs? Assume a constant rate of cubs per grizzly per year. Round up to the nearest whole number of years.

 

 

50  cubs every 4 years  =  50 / 4   =  12.5 cubs per year

 

So  each female (on  average)  produces   12.5  / 20   = .625 cubs per year

 

So  30 females  can  produce   30 * .625 =  18.75 cubs per year

 

So...it will take them

 

100 / 18.75    ≈ 5 years to produce 100

So the correct answer for this is 6? but you gave me 5? Im confused

100 / 18.75 =  5.33

 

I rounded to  the  nearest whole number

 

If we round up, the answer is  6
