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)

If the camel took a sh!t on the cat,how would that change the answer??
