set up a proportion

14.6 lbs per hr/1 hour = x lbs/ 8.75 hrs

14.6 lbs____ x lb

------------ = ------------

1 hr______8.75 hrs

you cross multiply the 14.6 and 8.75 to get 127.75 and cross multiply the x and 1 to get x then x=127.75

14.6 (8.75)= 127.75

x= 127.75

( the underscores are just to show the proportion better don't worry bout them)
