3 times his body weight => 3*250*16 (in ounces)
according to question-
3*250*16 = n *4
n= 3000

Elvis's body weight in 1976 was 250 lb = 250*16 oz
3 times Elvis's body weight in 1976 was = 250*16*3 oz
Hence number of s/w(s) = (250*16*3)/4 =3000...............Ans D

Elvis consumed (250 x 16 x 3)/4 = 250 x 4 x 3 = 3000 sandwiches.
