Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dogs to cats is 4:3 so cats to dogs is 3:4 Knowing that you can just relate the ratios:\[\frac{3}{4}=\frac{45}{x}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let the common ratio be x. so no. of dogs = 4x no. of cats = 3x now , it is given that no. of cats = 45 = 3x find x. find no. of dogs.
