    there are 18 dogs 6 of them are male and 12 are female so write it as a fraction of the total number of dogs. \[\frac{ 12 }{ 18 } = \frac{ 2 }{ 3 }\] So we can say 2/3 of each species is female right? if the total number of cats are 24 then 2/3 of it is female \[24 * \frac{ 2 }{ 3} = 16\] This is how I got the answer !
