    Nope. For C, I only count 46 legs.

    Here's something you can do to get the answer:
    1) multiply the number 4 with the number I'd dogs becuase they have 4 legs.
    2) multiply the number 2 with the number of of birds because they only have 2 legs.
    3) add the numbers you ended up with to see if they add up to 48. If it equals 48, then it is the answer.

    Thank you this was a big help I got
    4(7)=28 +10(2)+=20
    28+20=48=A
