the cost of 6 cows are same as cost of 8 goats. if cost of 9 cows and twice numbered goats is rs. 9000, then find the cost of 3 cows and 6 goats?

(Here , twice numbered goats means 9 * 2 = 18)

  • maths --plse help me.. -

    9cows + 18goats = 9000
    Divide the whole equation with 3
    3cows + 6goats = 3000

  • maths --plse help me.. -

    Let cost of cow be x and goat be y
    6x=8y(given)
    9x+18y=9000
    x+2y=1000
    X=1000-2y
    Equating value of x in next step we get
    6000-12y=8y
    6000=20y
    So y = 300 than x = 400
    So cost of 3x+6y= 1200+1800
    3000 RS is the cost of 3 cows and 6 goats
    VERIFICATION
    9X+18Y= 9000
    3600+5400= 9000
