Its a story problem:
The flying W Ranch raises only cows and horses. There are total 340 animals. The owner prefers horses to cows, so he has 52 more horses than cows.
a. Write two different linear equations to model this situation.
b. Solve the system of linear equations using the substitution method
How many horse live at the ranch?
Mac's farm has a total of 18 horses and 27 cows. What is the ratio of horses to cows in simplest form? A: 6/9 B: 18/27 C: 2/3 D: 3/2 I say the answer is b because 18/27 is the numbers and it is simplest form.
The number of cattle on a ranch was four times the number of horses. After 280 cattle were sold, there were twice as many horses as cattle. What were the total numbers of horses and cattle on the ranch before the 280 were sold?
