hmmm, there is some missing information here I think
That is what I thought too...I was trying to help my cousin, but that is all the information that was on their worksheet.

ok so let's set this up
if the total number of books is X, then we know that 1/6x are fiction, 1/3x are nature, and 12 are mystery
so 1/6x + 1/3x + 12 = X
so 12 = x - 1/6x - 1/3x or 12 = 1/2x so x = 12/.5 = 24
so the total number of books is 24, and precisely 12 mystery, 4 fiction and 8 nature
Thanks!!
no problem! the key assumption is that , that's all the types of books there are
the reason it works is they basically tell you that half the books are mystery , since if 1 - 1/3 - 1/6 = 1/2
good luck!
