**Problem Solving**

- The veterinarian at City Zoo keeps track of how much water each animal drinks in a period of time. Decide which animal drinks the greatest amount of water and fill in the blank.

The ___________ drinks the greatest amount of water.

Answer:

The**elephant**drinks the greatest amount of water.

Explanation:

We know that**1 pint**is equal to**2 cups**.

**1 quarts**is equal to 2 pints.

**1 gallon**is equal to 4 quarts. - The elephant drinks 20 one – gallon containers and 20 one – quart containers.

**20/4 = 5 gallons**

20 gallons + 5 gallons = 25 gallons

The**elephant**drinks**25**gallons of water. - The lion drinks 40 one – quarts containers and 3 one – gallon containers.

**40/4 = 10 gallons**

10 gallons + 3 gallons = 13 gallons

The**lion**drinks**13**gallons of water. - The Giraffe drinks 20 one – quart containers and 5 one – gallon containers.

**20/4 = 5 gallons**

5 gallons + 5 gallons = 10 gallons

The**giraffe**drinks**10**gallons of water. - The zebra drinks 3 one – gallon containers and 3 one – quart containers.

3 gallons and 3 quarts is slightly greater than 3 gallons.

The**zebra**drinks**3 gallons**of water.
