need help with this story problem... John started a new diet. On this diet, one may lose up to 7 pounds after the 1st week on the diet and no more than 2 pounds per week after the 1st week. At most, how many pounds can John lose over the 5 weeks he is on the diet?

    I'm not quite sure what "one may lose up to 7 pounds after the 1st week on the diet", should that be "one may lose up to 7 pounds ON the 1st week of on the diet"? You don't really lose weight after a diet right? Otherwise I think it's just: Total 5 weeks. 1st week: 7 pounds 2nd week: 2 pounds 3rd week: 2 pounds 4th week: 2 pounds 5th week: 2 pounds Total of 15 pounds.
