I had to comment that your answer is incorrect :) Your total number of animals are 30 and not 36

Oh my goodness, you are so right. I looked at my scratch paper from when I was making the problem and realized that I had changed one of the variables, but forgot to change the other (the total number of animals). Thanks so much for catching this! I am editing the post to reflect your correction.
