# Answer me pls I will mark brainliest worth 50 points. (sorry when I put 100 it goes to 50). A random sample of dogs at different animal shelters in Abu Dhabi shows that 12 of the 60 dogs are puppies. Abu Dhabi's animal shelters collectively house 1,200 dogs each year. About how many dogs in all of the city’s animal shelters are puppies?

■ A random sample of dogs at different animal shelters in Abu Dhabi shows that 12 of the 60 dogs are puppies. Abu Dhabi's animal shelters collectively house 1,200 dogs each year. About how many dogs in all of the city’s animal shelters are puppies?

➢12/60 are puppies. 60 are the number of dogs, 12 is number of puppies.

If there are 1200 dogs, we focus on the 60. 1200/60= 20

Whatever we do to the denominator we do to the numerator, so since we can multiply 60 by 20 to get 1200; we need to multiply 12 by 20 to get the total number of dogs. Which is 240.

60/1200 = x/20 1200x /1200 =12/20 x =240
