**bobpursley**, Friday, March 8, 2013 at 5:54amIf there were exactly 2 pigeons sitting on each telephone pole, then 1 pigeon would have no space ....the number of pigeons is odd. And, numberpigions=numberpoles*2+1

TIf there were exactly 3 pigeons sitting on each telephone pole, then there would be 1 telephone pole with no pigeons on...means 3*poles-1=number pigeosn

Pig=2Poles+1

Pig=3Poles-1

subtract equation 1 from 2

0=poles-2 or poles=2

pigeons=5
