A farmer has some chickens and some goats. Altogher there are 43 heads and 108 legs. How many chickens does the farmer have? How many goats does the farmer have?

• Math -

43 heads = 43 animals ( I hope!!)
C = number of chickens
G = number of goats

C + G = 43
2C + 4G = 108

solve simultaneously to find C and G

if you are right,
C = 32
G = 11
