An adult blue whale weighs 260,000 pounds. An adult African Elephant weighs 6.5 tons. How many times greater is the weight of the adult blue whale than the weight of the adult African elephant?

A short ton = 2,000 pounds.

260,000 / 2,000 =130 - short tons - the weight of adult Blue Whale.

130/6.5 =20 times heavier is a Blue Whale compared to an African Elephant.
