A fox, a coyote, and a wolf weigh a total of 120 pounds. The ratio of the weight of the fox to the weight of the coyote is 3:8. The weight of the coyote is 32 pounds. What is the weight of the wolf?

fox:coyote = 3:8 

coyote = 32

32 ÷ 8 = 4

3 * 4 = 12 pounds (fox)

wolf = 120 - 32 - 12 

       = 88 - 12

       = 76, which is your answer :)
