At a kennel for dogs and cats, 75% of the animals are dogs. There are 18 dogs in the kennel. What is the total number of animals in the kennel?

.75x + 18

75% of 18 is 13.5. 75% is equivalent to 75/100, or 3/4. So 3/4 of 13.5 is 10.125. So you add 13.5 and 10.125 to to get 23.625. But that can't be possible, so we round it up to 24 smiley
