**Reiny**, Wednesday, April 8, 2009 at 6:12pmlet the total number of animals be x

x/3 + 2x/12 + 19 = x

x/3 + x/6 + 19 = x

multiply by 6

2x + x + 114 = 6x

114 = 3x

x = 38

so number of dogs = 38/3 = not a whole number,

neither is 38/6 for number of cats

something is wrong with your question.

I have a suspicion it has to do with the 2/12.

check your typing.
