Exercise 3

Dumbo the elephant likes to eat peanuts. What elephant doesn't? He eats all the peanuts the visitors to the zoo bring him. He made a New Year's Resolution to cut back, but they're always right there. If the visitors bring 100 peanuts and Dumbo eats them all over the space of four hours, how many peanuts per hour does Dumbo eat? Bonus question: how much liquid Maalox will he need to counteract the acid reflux brought on by his excessive peanut intake?
