D + C = 12 (number of heads)

2D + 4C = 32 (number of feet)

Solve for D and C, using algebra.

there are 4 cows and 8 ducks because if you - 32-24=8 and 8 divided by 2 = 4 cows

so my answer is 4 cows and 8 ducks

8 ducks and 4 cows

D + C = 12

8 + 4 = 12

2 D + 4 C = 32

2(8)+ 4(4)= 32

16 + 16 = 32

32 = 32
