**Steve**, Monday, November 7, 2011 at 6:43pmIf you post a problem, remember you are asking for help. I get put off when you say, "you must show your working," first because I do not in fact have to do it at all, and second, it's bad English.

So, rather than just doing a copy and paste, edit it so it looks like you're requesting assistance.

So, on to the problem:

240 lambs were born

80% of sheep had lambs, so there were 240/.8 = 300 sheep in the flock

That answers the question.

If you are interested in how many had 1,2,3 lambs, then

30% of 240 = 72 had 1 lamb

40% of 240 = 96 had 2 lambs

That leaves 30% = 72 had 3 lambs
