DOG'S LIFE

 multiplying basic algebra

Dogs live much shorter lives than humans. An old dog might be 12-14 years. From that we say that every calendar year is 7 dog years.

If that is so, how old in dog years is a dog that is 5 calendar years?

How old in dog years is a dog 3.5 calendar years?

How old in dog years is a dog 12 calendar years?

How old is your dog in calendar years?
How old is your dog in dog years?

---------------------

To be more accurate, the first year in a dog's life is like 13 human years, and then, each year is like 6 human years.

Write a formula to state the above?

With that formula:
Compute the dog age of dogs that are:
4 calendar years
8 calendar years
13 calendar years

------------

Horses can live to 13-16 years. Let's say 15 is the average.

If a human is expected to live an average of 75 years, how many horse years are there in calendar years?

How old in horse years is a horse that is:

3 calendar years?
6 calendar years?
11 calendar years?

Your favorite animal. Pick an animal that you like. Find the average life expectancy of that animal. Figure how many years old an animal of that type would be if it were:

5 calendar years
7 calendar years
1.5 calendar years
