2. Bowsers dog food is 60% meat. If Bowser needs 24 oz of meat each week, how many ounces of dog food should he eat? ____oz

Answer :

To get the answer we have to use proportion
20% -----------------27
100% --------------x
crossmultiply now
20*x=100*27           /:20
x=2700:20
x=135 miles/hour

Similar situation
60% --------------24
100% -------------x
crossmultiply
60*x=100*24     
60x=2400        /:60
x=40 - its the answer
