    Answer:

    Lisa will not be able to feed both tanks the same amount of food.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    This question is incomplete, here is the complete question :

    “Lisa pet shop has 2 fish tank . Tank A contains smaller fish who were fed 1 gram of food each per day. Tank B contains larger fish who are fed 2 gram each per day. If tank B contains 2/3 the number of fish Tank A contains,will Lisa ever feed both tanks the same amount of food.”

    Let the number of fish in tank A = f

    Lisa fed 1 gram of food each per day  = f × 1 = f

    So,the number of fish in tank B =  \frac{2}{3}f

    Lisa fed 2 gram of food each per day = \frac{2}{3}f\times 2

    If both the tanks are fed with same amount of food then

    f=\frac{2f}{3}\times 2

    f=\frac{4f}{3}

    ⇒ 3f = 4f

    ⇒ 3 = 4

    But 3 ≠ 4

    Therefore, Lisa will not be able to feed both tanks the same amount of food.
