there are a group of ducks and goats there are 99 heads and legs among them there twice as many ducks than goats are many ducks and goats are there?

  • math -

    x = number of goats
    x = goat heads
    4x = goat legs

    2x = number of ducks
    2x = duck heads
    2(2x) = 4x = duck legs

    x + 4x + 2x + 4x = 99
    11x = 99
    x = 9

    x = 9 = number of goats
    2x = 18 = number of ducks
