Let us assume the number of student's in Zoe's class = x Then Number of students that have pets = 4x/5 Number of students that have rodents as pets = (1/8) * (4x/5)                                                                           = x/10 Number of students in Zoe's class that have pets that are not rodents = (4x/5) - (x/10)                                                          = (8x - x)/10                                                          = 7x/10 I hope that the procedure is clear enough for you to understand and this is the answer that you were looking for.
