Xavier volunteers at his town's animal shelter. Every day, he puts out 250 grams of food for each of the 8 dogs. If dog food comes in 10-kilogram bags, how many days will one bag of dog food last?


The duration will be five days. Step-by-step explanation: First, we need to calculate the total amount of something, which is 250 multiplied by 8. This equals 2000 grams. Next, we need to convert grams into kilograms, since the question asks for a duration in days based on a 10-kilogram total. There are 1000 grams in a kilogram, so 2000 grams equals 2 kilograms. Finally, we can calculate the duration using the formula 10 divided by 2, which equals 5 days.
