    The squirell eats 7 * 365 nuts per year, which is 2555 nuts per year The total time is (4)(3/5) years, so the total nuts is (2555)(4)(3/5) = 6132 nuts

    You may need to add 7 to the total answer of 6132 to account for leap years.

    Dimensional analysis is the key here man, it basically lets you convert units to find answers. 4.6 years * ( 2555 nuts/1 year). Do you see how the year "unit" cancels out and you are left with the unit of "nuts". It may seem hard now but later down the road you'll be blad you know how to manipulate units like this.
