Q15
Since the nbr of sheep left is equal to nbr of goat left,
Sheep left >352 ÷ 2= 176
sheep left > 100%  20% = 80%
80 / 100 S = 176
Goats left > 100%  12% = 88%
88 / 100 G = 176
Total sheep = 176 x 100/80 = 220
Total goats = 176 x 100/88 = 200
Fraction for sheep + goats > 1  2/5 = 3/5
3/5 T > 220 +200 = 420
1/5 T > 420 ÷ 3 = 140
a) cow> 2 x 140 = 280
b) Total > 5 x 140 = 700 animals

Work from the back to front and you will get the following:
At first
D[][][][]
L [][][][][]
Don gave 1/4 to Larry
D[][][]
L [][][][][][]
Larry gave 1/2 to Don
D[][][][][][]
L [][][]
9 units > 315
1 unit > 315 ÷ 9 = 35
a)Don > 4 x 35 = 140 at first
b)Larry > 315  140 = 175 at first

Q17
May average > 24
June average >26 after added 5 classes of 32 participants
Total difference > (5 x 32)  (5 x 26) = 30
Difference in average > 26  24 = 2
Number of classes in May > 30 ÷ 2 = 15
Number of classes in June > 15 + 5 = 20
In June, total participants > 20 x 26 = 520
