    Okay so let's start with the leaves. They each eat 10 pounds per day. So that means 20 pounds per day. Multiply that by 365 days, and you get how many pounds per year they consume. Multiply that by the price per pound and you get how much it costs for the leaves per year. Then you can do a similar pattern for the hay.

    Okay we can start with the numbered questions. 1) The types of food they eat are hay and leaves. They are the only things that are going to cost anything, because water is free.

    So you don't need to pay attention to the water for these questions.

    Okay. So I answered what I can without answering "How much does it cost to feed them for a full year", because Question #3 cuts off and it isn't finished.

    Okay. So I told you how to calculate how much it costs to feed them leaves for a year. Now you just need to figure it out for hay. How many weeks are ina year?

    so add how many tons of hay they eat per week together (0.25+0.75), multiply that by 52, that will give you how many tons they eat per year. Then multiply that by how much it costs per ton of hay. Then add that to what you calculated for leaves.
