  1. Answer:
    f 1 pound on Earth is equal to 1.19 pounds on Neptune all you have to do is multiply the number of Earth pounds by their Neptunian equivalent: 9×1.19=10.71 the dog would weigh 10.71 pounds 🙂 I hope this makes sense 🙂

  2. Answer:
    They will weigh 10.71 on Neptune
    Step-by-step explanation:
    We can write a ratio to solve
    1 Earth              9 Earth
    ————–  = —————
    1.19 Nept           x Neptune
    Using cross products
    1x = 1.19 * 9
    x =10.71
    They will weigh 10.71 on Neptune
