     birds: k

3. (k x 3)+k=8

        3k   +k=8

               4k=8

                  k=2

4. dogs: 8

My answer is nothing. I did not understand the question, is there a total of 16 or are there 16 cats? It did not make sense! My daughter did not even understand this question. Since she has a test tomorrow. Please update this with correct thinking. Thank you
