We will need to find out how many pounds he lifts.

 

Since he has 2 20 pounds this means that each time he lifts, he lifts 40 pounds.

 

He lifts 12 times so 40x12=480 pounds.

 

We divide by thirty because he uses 2 15 pounds.

 

This means that 480/30 = 16

 

He lifts 16 times

 

Hope this helped! laugh
