    set the problem up like this:

    Cat= .5Dog

    D= .5X(camel)

    C+D+X= 27kilos

    .5D+.5X+ X= 27Kilos

    Does that help you?

    If the camel is 16, the dog is 8 and the cat is 4 - that totals 28 kilos. There is no way to do it to get 27 if you are using whole numbers.

    You can't get exact, but the cat would weigh 4 kilos, the dog 8 kilos, and the camel 16 kilos. This would be 28 kilos. I am not getting into decimals!!!

    cat +dog+camel = 27kg

    dog=2cat,

    camel=2dog=4cat

    (1+2+4)cat = 27

    cat = 27/7

    dog = 2*27/7

    camel = 4*27/7

    Let the camel weight equal x

    then x+1/2x+1/4x=27

    This gives the camel weight as 15.729 kg (to 3 decimal places).

    The rest is easy (actually it was all easy)

    Divide the 27 into three

    This sounds more like a math problem than a trivia question
