Algebra? Can someone help?

Betty started a health and fitness program. So far, she has lost a total of 5 pounds. She is losing an average of one-fourth of a pound per week. If she maintains her average weekly weight loss, what will be her total weight loss in 12 weeks?

    • Yes, she is a college student that can't do division... Welcome to reality. The next generation will do well for our nation! :D

    • @RationalLioness Are you saying that in her defense? I don't know what the norm is nowadays, perhaps other subjects are prioritised over maths (though I doubt that), but when I learned this, I think I must've been around 12 years old. Probably younger actually. And no I did not enjoy some luxury private education - this was just average everyday primary school (or whatever your country's equivalent may be called).

    • I mean my 2 year old could probably solve this. This girl is 18-24!

    • Plug 12 into x and it should give you your answer.
