There is a total of 3472 goldfish and guppies in an aquarium. The total number of guppies and catfish in the aquarium is 1897. There are six times as many goldfish as catfish. How many fishes are there in the aquarium altogether?

Cat = u

[Gup] [6u] = 3472

[Gup] =1897

Therefore [5u] = 3472-1897

Solve u and add to 3472 and you shd get [gup]+[6u]+, ie, total fish
