Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First find how much food is used every month for 8 dogs 7 bags in 2 months so 7/2 bags for 1 month ok now set up ratio to find number of bags needed every month for 20 dogs \[\frac{\frac{7}{2}}{8} = \frac{x}{20}\] crossmultiply to find x, then multiply by 3 to find food needed for 3 months for 20 dogs
