Question

Michaela caught 3 fish, which weigh a total of 19 1/2 pounds. One fish weighs 7 5/8 pounds and another weighs 5 3/4 pounds. How much does the third fish weigh?

1 Answer

  • Let x be the weight of first fish
          y be the weight of second fish
          z be the third fish

    x = 7 5/8 pounds
    y = 5 3/4 pounds
    z = ?

    19 1/2 = 7 5/8 + 5 3/4 + z
    z = 6 1/8 pounds

    Hope this answers the question. Have a nice day.
