A farmer has a farmyard containing both cows and chickens numbering 54legs. How many chickens and cows does he have?

He could have 25 chickens and 1 cow.
Or he could have 1 chicken and 13 cows.
Or he could have any number between. 
Please how did you get that answer

chickens = 25 * 2 legs = 50 legs
cows = 1 * 4 = 4 legs
50 + 4 = 54
or
chicken  1 * 2 = 2 legs
cows 13 * 4 = 52 legs
52 + 2 = 54
I'm sure you've left something out of the original question.
