a) Change in months after M months = 1.5 ounces per month * M

b) Weight after M months = 200 onces + 1.5 ounces per month * M

c) 20 months

d) 20 months

Step-by-step explanation:

Let M represent the number of months.

So,

a) Change in months after M months = 1.5 ounces per month * M

b) Weight after M months = 200 onces + 1.5 ounces per month * M
