    Each can of cat food holds 4 ounces

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We shall assign the ounces of one can as; x

    Since the cat is fed  1 can in the morning and 1 and ½ cans in the evening, then the cat eats;

    x + ³/2 x ounces per day

    This is also equal to 10 ounces

    x + ³/2 x = 10

    ⁵/2 x = 10

    x = 10 * ²/5

    x = 4

    = 4 ounces
