math question (counting)
posted by anonymous .
When Josh was visiting his family’s farm, he saw that the farm only raised chickens and cows. Josh counted 38 heads and 100 feet in the barnyard. How many chickens and how many cows were in the barnyard?: *
26 chickens and 12 cows
20 chickens and 18 cows
23 chickens and 15 cows
29 chickens and 9 cows
The first combination would have 38 heads and 74 feet, so that doesn't fit.
Try the others yourself and see which combination works
