A certain animal in the zoo has consumed 39 pounds of food in six days. If it continues to eat at the same rate, in how many more days will its total consumption be 91 pounds?

A)12

B)11

C)10

D)9

E)8

I think that B is right answer

The question asks us to find how many more days is required for the animal to consume 91 pounds in total. So effectively we are asked to find how many days will the animal take to consume 91-39 = 52 pounds of food. We can setup a simple unitary method relationship approach to find the answer. So, the question is really asking If the animal consumes 39 pound of food in 6 days then how long does it take this animal consume 52 pounds of food at the same rate so the ans has to be E
