    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)

    put in a number for Wolves

    find twice that number to get the Tigers

    now test the two numbers in your answer.
