Question: A giant pacific octopus weighs 110 pounds. A blue-ringed octopus weighs 4 ounces. How many blue-ringed octopuses weigh the same amount as a giant pacific octopus?

Answer:  440 blue-ringed octopuses

Solution:  A pound is 16 ounces, so it takes 16 ÷ 4 = 4 blue-ringed octopuses to make up a pound. So, 4 × 110 = 440 blue-ringed octopuses weigh the same as a 110-pound giant pacific octopus.
