The ratio of cats to dogs at the local pet store is 8 to 12.

If there are 36 total cats and dogs, how many cats are in the store?

8 /[8 + 12]  x  36 =~ 14 Cats [How come you don't  get an EVEN number of cats?]

 

36 - 14 =22 Dogs.

Cats are 8 out of (8+12) =  20       8/20 * 36 = 14.4 cats       yup    14.4 cats
