    Algebra Help Please...Equation?

    A person must burn 3500 Calories to lose one pound of weight.

    Write an equation that represents the number of calories a person would have to burn a day to lose four pounds in two weeks.

    Can somebody help? Thanks!

    (3500 Cal /1 lb)*(4 lbs / 2 wk)*(1 wk / 7 day) = (3500*4 / 2 *7) = 100 Cal/day
