A kangaroo weighs about 0.03 ounces at birth. Fully grown, it can weigh 180 pounds. How many times as heavy as a newborn kangaroo is a fully grown adult?

Answer:

0.03*x=180
180/0.03= 6672

1 pound = 16 ounce

fully grown kangaroo weight = 180 *16 =2880 ounce

2880/0.03= 96000

fully grown kangaroo is 96000 times heavy than a newly born kangaroo
