One fourth of the dogs are poodles, means that there are 25 poodles, not 24. Then one third of the poodles are beagles, means that there are 8⅓ beagles. Does this mean that the ⅓ of a beagle is a cross breed?

I got 25 also and then rounding down to 8 and then came up with 7 for the last answer.24 is wrong.

I am so sorry for the error. I fixed it and the answer key too so now it is correct. Thanks for telling me.
