Answer:
Stepbystep explanation:
Equation:
89.50=2.35c+5.50d
If theres 22 dogs and cats in total you can plug in number less than 22 for c(# of cats) and d(# of dogs).
So we try pats numbers 8 cats and 14 dogs so
89.50=2.35(8)+5.50(14)
89.50=18.8+77
89.50=95.8
So pats numbers were wrong so we try different numbers
So i started pluging in numbers from under 22 so i got c is 10 and d is 12 lets try it with the equation
89.50=2.35(10)+5.50(12)
89.50=23.5+66
89.50=89.50 so it works the answer to how many number of dogs and cats is 12 dogs and 10 cats

I believe it is 23 birds and 4 cats, because if I did my math right and understood the question correctly its
23 birds 2 dollars a piece which is 46 dollars
4 cats 6 dollars a piece which is 24 dollars
4+23 = 27
24+46 = 70
So there were 23 birds at the shelter
