that is like the ratio Tetra: ruppies that is 11:1 so add them together thta is 12= 12x11 tetras is 44 4x1 guppies=4 44:4

Guppies . . . . 1 time Tetras . . . . . 11 times Sum of fish. . . . . 12 times Number of fish . . 48            12 times = 48 Divide each side of the equation by 12 :               1 time = 4 Guppies  =  1 time  =  4 guppies Tetras  =  11 times  =  11 x 4  =  44 tetras Total fish  =  4 + 44  =  48    yay !
