Question 1 of 3


In a zoo, there were 1200 animals.

70% of these were herbivores and the rest were carnivores.

A few days later, a certain number of carnivores and herbivores were transported to the zoo.

This caused the number of herbivores to increase by 120%.

As a result, 20% of all the animals in the zoo are carnivores.

(a) How many carnivores were added to the zoo ?

(b) If 80% of the initial number of animals were herbivores instead, how many carnivores were added to the zoo?
