Equation: 8p = 12.25

Ounces of food per puppy: Approximately 1.5

Mika has 12.25 ounces of puppy food to feed 8 puppies.

All 8 puppies need the same amount.

So, how many ounces of food will each puppy get?

That's where I come in.

I guess.

To find out how many ounces of food each puppy gets, you must make an equation.

Luckily for you, I've already made an equation of this in my head before I even finished typing this sentence.

You can use my equation if you want.

Equation: 8p = 12.25

Divide both sides by 8 to get approximately (hence I rounded to the nearest tenth) 1.5 ounces of food per puppy.

Now you've got some nice work to show your teacher and you've got the correct answer. Well done.

It would be 1.5 ounces because 12.25 divided by 8 and you would round your answer
