Am I wrong or the solutions watch

1. For the questions attached, I was wondering if I was wrong for part A or the solutions.
I got the opposite way round when I did it. I know its really easy. But i don't know why I get the opposite answer (I get 2Y=Z)

The solution is right, although I definitely see how you would get it the wrong way round.
Try thinking about it with numbers and you'll see why it's the wrong way round
3. The solution is correct as you think about it as there being y amount of tigers and y is double the amount of wolfs (z).There Y=2Z
4. put in a number for Wolves

find twice that number to get the Tigers

i do not remember any Wolves appearing in the delightful books by AA Milne.
