**The alligator problem:**

An alligator’s tail length, T varies directly as its body length, B and an alligator with a body length of 4 ft has a tail of 2.5 ft. so what is the tail length of an alligator whose body length is 4.8 ft?

Note: I did not make this problem up, I saw it on an online IQ test and has sparked many conversations in my household. When asked to create this blog, I found it here: http://mathhomeworkanswers.org/23514/an-alligators-tail-length-t
