    At a pet show the ratio of dogs to cats is 4:3 if the number of cats is 45 find the number of dogs at the show?

    dogs to cats is 4:3 so cats to dogs is 3:4 Knowing that you can just relate the ratios:\[\frac{3}{4}=\frac{45}{x}\]

    let 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.

    I guess you could skip the first step to get the same answer:\[\frac{4}{3}=\frac{x}{45}\]
