This chart shows the number of different types of big cats in a zoo. There are 20 big cats in the zoo altogether. Here are some statements about the chart. Tick the statements that are true. There are more cheetahs than jaguars. The total number of lions and tigers is 10. One-quarter of the big cats are cheetahs. There are more than five jaguars.

Let’s test whether the first statement is true. There are more cheetahs than jaguars. The chart shows us that a quarter of the big cats are cheetahs. But less than a quarter of the big cats are jaguars. So there are more cheetahs than jaguars.

Let’s check if the second statement is true. The total number of lions and tigers is 10. We know the chart represents 20 big cats. So half of the chart represents 10 cats. The number of tigers and lions together is more than half of the chart. So this statement is false.

Let’s check if the third statement is true. One-quarter of the big cats are cheetahs. This statement is true.

Now let’s check the final statement. There are more than five jaguars. We know that the chart represents 20 big cats. A quarter of the chart is five cats because 20 divided by four is five. So if there are more than five jaguars, the jaguars will show as more than a quarter on the chart. The jaguars are less than a quarter. So this statement is false.

The statements which are true are “There are more cheetahs than jaguars” and “One-quarter of the big cats are cheetahs.”
