In the farm pet club pet show, 44 pets are entered. There are 3 times as many dogs as cats and half as many ferrets as dogs. How many of each are there?

let the number of cats be c
then the number of dogs is 3c
and the number of ferrets is 3c/2
c + 3c + 3c/2 = 44
multiply be 2
2c + 6c + 3c = 88
I am sure you can finish it from there
