On this Word Problem Wednesday, we're all about our furry canine companions! Give our word problem a try; we'll update with the answer tomorrow!

Grace, Ruby, and James volunteer to walk shelter dogs. Grace walks half as many dogs as Ruby, who walks 5 more dogs than James. James walks 9 dogs. How many dogs did Grace walk?

Update: Here's the solution!

If Ruby walked 5 more dogs than James, then she walked 9 + 5 = 14 dogs. Grace walked half as many as that, so she walked half of 14 = 7 dogs.
