    Challenge Question #1:

    "Gaining at a rate of about 1.2 pounds per hour, how much total weight has
    the calf gained since her arrival at Sea World on January 11?"

    Dear Journey North,

    Cameron Keeney and Emma Lindsey-Hunter figured out that from Jan. 11th to
    Feb. 25th was 34 days. We then multiplied 34 x 24 hrs = 816. Finally, we
    816 x 1.2 = 979.2 pounds. Wow! that is almost unbelievable.

    Your Friends,
