# Cheap Animals

You’re given a hundred dollars and told to spend it all purchasing exactly one hundred animals at the pet store. Dogs cost \$15. Cats cost a buck, and mice are .25 cents each.

You have to spend exactly one hundred dollars and you have to end up with exactly one hundred animals?

The question is, how many of each animal do you have to purchase to equal a hundred animals purchased at exactly one hundred dollars?

3 Dogs @ \$15 each = \$45
56 Mice @ \$0.25 each = \$14
41 Cats @ \$1 each = \$41
Total of 100 Dogs/Mice/Cats for \$100

That is absolutely correct, Paul!

Great job, you’re today’s winner.

As written, you don’t have to buy any mice or dogs. 100 cats at \$1 apiece = \$100.
