Total food requirement = 24*7*10 dog days ounce
Quote:
If the kennel purchases dog food in cases of 30 cans each and if each can holds 8 ounces of dog food

Total purchase of 30 cans = 240 ounces

So, Number of cases required for feeding the dogs for 7 days is $$\frac{24*7*10}{30*8}$$ = 7 cases, Answer must be (C)

Since each dog requires 10 ounces of dog food per day, 24 dogs require 10 x 24 = 240 ounces of dog food per day and 240 x 7 = 1680 ounces of dog food for the 7 days.

Since each case of dog food has 30 cans and each can has 8 ounces of dog food, a case has 30 x 8 = 240 ounces of dog food.

Therefore, 1680/240 = 7 cases of dog food are needed to feed 24 dogs for 7 days.
