Leticia's cat weighs 12.6 pounds. Her dog weighs 3.8 times as much as her cat. What does Leticia's dog weigh in pounds?
dog equals cat times 3.8
dog = (3.8)(12.6) = 47.88
Since the factors were accurate to only one decimal place,
we can't expect the product to be more accurate than that,
so the answer should be rounded to 47.9 pounds
