**Reiny**, Saturday, October 27, 2012 at 8:41amkittens --- x

adult cats -- 6x+4

after adoption:

kittens = x-8

6x+4 = 8(x-8) - 4

6x + 4 = 8x - 64 - 4

-2x = -72

x = 36

**Number of adults has not changed, so there are**

6(36) + 4 or 220 adult cats

check:

originally..

number of kittens 36

cats = 220

is 6(36) + 4 = 220 ? yes

after adoption:

kittens = 28

is 8(28)-4 = 220 ? YES

My answer is correct
