Homework Help: Pre-Algebra

Posted by kay on Wednesday, February 20, 2008 at 6:13pm.

While visiting a farm, you notice that there are only chickens and rabbits in the farmyard. You can't help but wonder how many of each animal there is on the yard, but when you ask Farmer Fred he refuses to give you a direct answer. (Some say he must have been a math teacher before he became a farmer.) Fred says that there are 18 heads and 58 feet in the yard (not including themselves) Assuming there are no mutant animals how many chickens and rabbits are in the yard?

Okay, 18 heads = 18 animals my question is how do I go about finding this?
