The black and white goats aren't in color... they're in black and white. So they didn't get eaten.

I would assume that's 3*5=15. Or 0 if they all ran away... Get the feeling there might be a trick involved...

According to this, it only says, "the multiplication or product of the number of white and black goat" If it is just one white goat and one black goat, then the answer is one. However, it could just be a spelling error, and the answer is something else.

If we're talking about tricky grammar, then technically you can't have the "multiplication or product of the number of white and black goat" because then there would only be one number; the number of white and black goats would be 8 (3+5).
