Ok, so the ratio of cats to dogs id 4 to 8, meaning for every 8 dogs, there are 4 cats.

That means that out of every 12 animals, there are 4 cats and 8 dogs, so the fraction of cats in total animals is 4 / 12, and the fraction of dogs in total animals is 8 / 12.

OpenStudy (shadowfiend):

So, if you multiply 150 by each of those, you can find the number of acts and the number of dogs. If you simplify the fractions so that they have the lowest denominator, you will see that that's an easy calculation :)
