If there were 27 bikes, then there are 6 wheels left over. So there must be 6 tricycles and 27-6=21 bicycles.

what do you mean there are 6 wheels left over?

*If* there were only 27 bikes,

2*27=54

then there will be 6 wheels left.

Change each extra wheel together with a bike for a tricycle, you will get 6 tricycles and 21 bikes.
