    Answer:

    A person who weighs 48 pounds, burns 36 calories while running one mile.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    so i think an equation for this would look something along the lines of

    240 = 180x

    so that means p = 36x

    we can use the first equation to find x and the second to find p

    240 = 180x

    /180    /180

    4/3 = x

    so now

    p = 36(4/3)

    p = 144/3

    p = 48

    so a person who weighs 48 pounds, burns 36 calories while running one mile.

    Set up a ratio:

    240/180 = X/36

    Cross multiply:

    240 * 36 = 180x

    8640 = 180x

    Divide both sides by 180:

    X = 8640 / 180 = 48

    The person would weigh 48 pounds.
