1.5 dogs eat 1.5 pounds of meat in 1.5 days this means that 1.5 dogs eat 1 pound of meat/day

or to get rid of the decimal, 3 dogs eat 2 pounds of meat/day so 16 dogs would eat 32/3 pounds of meat/day

because 2*16/3=32/3 so in 4 days they will have eaten 128/3 pounds of meat because 4*32/3=128/3

the answer is therefore 128/3 pounds of meat which can written as 42 2/3 .

we love comment so lets us know if any thing wrong or other way to approach the same :)

problem of variation:-

* dogs increased- pounds will increase

=> dogs proportional to pound consumed......(1)

* dogs increase- days decrease

=> dogs inversly proportional to days..........(2)

from (1) & (2)

dogs proportional to pound per day

this will solve the problem
