Suppose there are x chickens and y cows Then heads => x + y = 64 And Legs => 2x + 3y = 147 2*Heads: 2x +2y = 128 Subtract from Legs: 19 = y Substitute in Heads: x = 45 Answer: 45 chickens.

50 horses and 10 chickens

This is not possible

If all were horses there would be 428 legs. The shortfall of 36 legs represents 18 chickens so there are 89 horses.

7 cows and 11 chickens. Cows have 4 legs. Chickens have 2 legs. (4 legs)(7 cows) + (2 legs)(11 chickens) = 50 legs. 7 cow heads = 11 chicken heads = 18 heads.

Do-it-in-your-head method: If all animals were chickens there would be 90 legs. There are 20 extra legs, each on a cow, so there are 20 cows and therefore 25 chickens.
