Question

At a farm, 2/7 of the animals and another 14 animals are rabbits. 1/3 of the remaining animals and another 29 animals are cows. The rest of the animals are goats. There are 65 goats at the farm. a) How many cows are at the farm? b) Find the total number of animals at the farm.

Answer

Draw the model according to the description.
If you interpret the English statements one by one,
you should get something like this:
 

Note that there are different parts and units involved.

From the model:
  2p = 29 + 65 = 94  so  p = 47

a.) Cows = p + 29 = 47 + 29 = 76

  remaining = 3p = 3 x 47 = 141
  5u = 14 + remaining = 14 + 141 = 155 so u = 31

b.) Total number of animals = 7u = 7 x 31 = 217.
