If a 10 pound turkey takes four hours to cook, how long will it 
take a 14 pound turkey to cook?

Hi there! Assuming the cooking rate is the same, I'd set up this 
problem like this:

10 pounds     14 pounds
---------  =  ---------
4 hours        x hours

Do you know how to solve this from here?  Write us back if you need 
more help!
