The lightest puppy in a litter weighs 9 ounces, which is 3/4 of the weight of the heaviest puppy.

The equation 3/4 w + 9 can be used to find the weight w in ounces of the heaviest puppy.

from the given information, we get,

3/4W = 9

to get rid of the denominator, multiply both sides by the denominator.

3W = 36

now divide both sides by 3

W = 12

the answer is 12 ounces.
