    Each can of cat food holds 4 ounces.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    • Step 1: Given that Shannon feeds her cat twice a day, morning = 1 can and evening = 1.5 cans. Total ounces the cat eats per day = 10. Form an equation out of this. Let the ounces in a can be x.

    ⇒ x + 1.5x = 10

    ⇒ 2.5x = 10

    ∴ x = 10/2.5 = 4 ounces
