Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if 20 are pigs and 25% are pig then the total number of animals is 20*4 = 80 so 40% of 80 is 32.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0think about how 4 parts of 25% (or 1/4) make up the whole so 4 *25% = 100% in this case the value of 25% is 20 pigs to find out how many farm animals there are total you have to multiply the value you know (20 pigs) by 4 > meaning there are 80 animals on the farm from there you find out how many horses there are

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well if there are 80 total animals and we know 20 are pig and 32 are cows you just have to set up 80(20 +32) = # of horses
