# there are 300 animals in the zoo there are 20 enclosures that hold 4 animals each 25 enclosures that hold 3 animals each and 42 enclosures that hold 2 animals each the rest of the animals all have their own enclosures how many have their own enclosure

## * = multiplied by

(20*4) + (25*3) + (42*2) = number of animals in other enclosures. The difference between that and 300 is your answer.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.

## To determine the number of animals that have their own enclosures, we need to subtract the total number of animals in the enclosures from the total number of animals in the zoo.

Let's calculate the total number of animals in the enclosures first:
- The number of enclosures that hold 4 animals each is 20, so the total number of animals in those enclosures is 20 x 4 = 80.
- The number of enclosures that hold 3 animals each is 25, so the total number of animals in those enclosures is 25 x 3 = 75.
- The number of enclosures that hold 2 animals each is 42, so the total number of animals in those enclosures is 42 x 2 = 84.

Adding up the animals in these enclosures: 80 + 75 + 84 = 239 animals.

Now, we can subtract the total number of animals in the enclosures from the total number of animals in the zoo:
300 - 239 = 61

Therefore, there are 61 animals that have their own enclosures.
