why would a superhero ask his nemesis how many cats she had

I need help please ;)

Not the answer you are looking for?

truthfully not really :(

ok, let me try and explain more clearly...

okay thanks :)

if not, I can try another way

yes it does make sense :)

ok - good

so does that mean I have 3 cats?

lets call the total number of cats c, then we can write:\[\frac{c}{8}=2\]so what will c equal?

8? I am still a little confused

1/8 of 8 is 1. so that cannot be correct.

1/8 of what number will give you 2?

so 1 cat?

1/8 of 1 is 1/8 - you cannot have an eight of a cat - at least not one that is alive! :)

16 cats? :(

bingo! well done! :)

yay! thank you God bless you! :)

it might be worth you reviewing what was done so that you understand this fully.

yw - I'm glad I was able to help. :)

do you want me to give you a similar question to check if you have understood this properly?

alright! I will do that :) thank you!

the number of cats I have is "two thirds" of my cats plus 9
how many cats do I have?

13?

remember "two thirds" have been accounted for - so what fraction remains?

not 6.

1/3

yes

so you now know that 1/3 of my total number of cats is 9 cats

so 1/3 of what number will give you 9?

27 :)

thats it! hope you are beginning to understand how to do these now?

I think so! thanks again! :)

yw :)
