• Billy needs to but some feed for his animals, but doesn't know how much feed he needs to buy or how much money he needs to buy it!﻿
• The Math-Less Farmer﻿ By: Alyssa Sweat
• Luckily, Mr.Brown is a pro at solving these types of problems.﻿
• My horse eats a fifty pound bag of feed a week, my head of twenty cattle eat one roll of hay a week, and my three hogs eat one fifty pound bag of feed every two weeks.﻿
• Horse feed cost \$15.95, hay cost \$20.30 a roll, and hog feed cost \$14.75 a bag.﻿
• I would like to buy enough feed to last me for a month.﻿
• Considering each month has four weeks, you will need 4 bags of horse feed, 4 rolls of hay, and 2 bags of hog feed.﻿
• Your total for horse feed is \$43.80. your total for hay is \$81.20, and your total for hog feed is \$29.50, bringing you to a grand total of \$154.50.﻿
• Mr. Brown had to multiply \$15.95 by 4 and \$20.30 by 4, considering those are the prices for hay and horse feed. The price for hog feed, \$14.75, only needs to be multiplied by 2﻿.
