The dolphins at the Scott Aquarium are fed 1 1/2 buckets of fish each day. The sea otters are fed

4/5 as much fish as the dolphins. How many buckets of fish are the sea otters fed each day?

_________________________________________________________________________

The number of buckets of fish the dolphins are fed = \(1+\frac12\)

The sea otters are fed \(\frac45\) as much fish as the dolphins. In other words...

the number of buckets of fish the sea otters are fed = \(\frac45\) the number of buckets of fish the dolphins are fed

the number of buckets of fish the sea otters are fed = \(\frac45\) * (\(1+\frac12\))

the number of buckets of fish the sea otters are fed = \(\frac45\) * \((\frac32)\)

the number of buckets of fish the sea otters are fed = \(\frac{12}{10}\)

the number of buckets of fish the sea otters are fed = \(\frac65\)
