The ratio of adult cats to kittens at a pet care center on Thursday was 5:4. There were 16 kittens there that day. Monday​, 27 adult cats were at the pet care center. What is the difference between the number of adult cats at the pet care center on Monday and Thursday​?

Because the ratio is 5:4, there are 5/4 times as many adult cats as kittens, or 4/5 times as many kittens than adult cats. so we have

 

$16\cdot\frac54=20$

 

$27-20=\boxed{7}$
