Homework Help: math

Posted by Bob on Wednesday, February 4, 2009 at 3:36pm.

Farmer Brown had some animals. One-fourth were horses, one-half were cows, and the rest were pigs. He had 8 pigs. How many animals did he have altogether?

I know you would get a common denominator for 1/4 and 1/2 which would be 4 so you would have 1/4+2/4= 3/4 and then take 4/4 -3/4 which would be 1/4 pigs, but I can't get the rest
