Problem of the Week
Problem A
Feeding the Pets

I give my dog \(162\) g of dog food each meal. He eats two meals per day.

I give my cat \(95\) g of cat food each meal. She eats one meal per day.

The dog food comes in a \(5\) kg bag. The cat food comes in a \(2\) kg bag.

If I start a new bag of food for each pet on the same day, which bag will run out first? Justify your answer.
