Simple. You have to be smarter than the ducks.

Let the number of pigs be x. So the number of ducks will be 10 - x. Since pigs have 4 legs and ducks have 2 legs, then we have 4x + 2(10 - x) = 36. Solve for x: 4x + 20 - 2x = 36 2x + 20 = 36 subtract 20 to both sides 2x = 16 divide by 2 to both sides x = 8 10 - x = 10 - 8 = 2 Thus, there are 8 pigs and 2 ducks. Check:
