I came up wit...I like their solution with a table.<br /><br />I came up with an algebraic formula, with 2 variables, fish tanks and sharks. Solving the formula, would give me the number of fish per tank. I set up an Excel Spreadsheet for the possible numbers of tanks and sharks and where it came up with an integer value for the number of fish, I had my answer.<br /><br />My formula? Fish per tank = (44-(Sharks in Gamma))/(6 + (tanks in Gamma))<br /><br />5 sharks, 7 tanks, came out 3 fish per tank.<br /><br />Same answer, but their table works better if you don't have a computer and spreadsheet to do it on.<br />Donhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/01287039093284613915noreply@blogger.com
