first, lets represent the gerbil eats 1 food unit the german shepard eats 14 times of gerbil or 14 food units together they eat 225 oz per week so gerbil=1food unit german shepard=14 food unit add them together gerbil+german shepard=15 food unit 15 food unit=225 oz divide both sides by 15 1 food unit=15 oz we want to find 14 food unit 15 oz times 14=210 oz the german shepherd eats 210 oz per week
