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  =  \(\frac65\)
