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

  • maths - insufficient information - ,

    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

  • maths - ,

    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.
