okay anna lets see. What is the total number of hamsters?

First, divide the total number of hamsters you want in cages by the amount of hamsters that will fit per cage. 172/6 = 28.6666667 Since this is not an even number, this means that there won't be exactly 6 hamsters in every cage. This means we will need to add an extra cage, which will make 29 cages, to put all hamsters in a cage. If you times 28 by 6...you will get 168 hamsters...so there will only be 4 hamsters, not 6, in the 29th cage. Therefore, you will need 29 cages, but there will only be 4 hamsters in the last. Hope you understand!
