let's call the animals "a" and birds "b" b=[latex] \frac{3}{28}a [/latex] we knot this from3/28 of the animals are birds. and we also know that 4/15 are birds of prey.  so p=[latex] \frac{4}{15}b [/latex] we could substitute: p=[latex] \frac{4*3}{15*28}[/latex] and solve: p=[latex] \frac{1}{35}[/latex] and this is the answer!
