Having trouble answering this: An animal shelter has 104 cats and dogs. The ratio of cats to dogs is 5:3. How many cats are at the shelter? Thanks in advance!

5 : 3   means that there are 8 equal  parts of the 104

 

And the number of cats is (5/8)  of this.....so

 

(5/8) (104)  =

 

520 / 8  =

 

260 / 4  =

 

130 / 2  =

 

65  cats

 

 

cool cool cool
