The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

With 60 Heads you would normally have 240 legs, so 240-213 = 27, so that means you have 27 three legged cows, and 60-27 = 33, so you have 33 Horses on the farm.

You are supposed to: 1) Write two equations, one for the number of heads (express it in terms of the number of cows and horses, which of course are expressed as variables), and one for the number of legs (also expressed as an equation in terms of the number of cows and horses. 2) Solve the two equations simultaneously.

If all cows were four-legged there would be a total of 4 x 131 ie 524 legs. There are therefore 36 missing legs so there are 95 horses. (4 x 95 + 3 x 36 = 380 + 108 = 488 legs)


There are horses and three legged cows there are a total of 63 heads and 240 legs how many horses?

The easiest way is to substract three times the number of heads from the legs and that will give you the amount of horses. The reasoning is as follows:legs = lheads = hhorses = xcows = (h - x)l = 3(h-x)+4xl = 3h-3x+4xl-3h = xx = l-3h


On a farm there are three-legged cows and horses there are 46 heads and 153 legs how many three-legged cows are there?

Do-it-in-your-head method: If all animals were horses there would be 4 x 46 ie 184 legs. There is a shortage of 31 legs which means there are 31 cows (and 15 horses). 31 x 3 = 93, 15 x 4 = 60 total 153. Shazam!

There are horses and three legged cows there are a total of 94 heads and 357 legs how many horses?

If the cows were normal there would be a total of 4 x 94 ie 376 legs. There is a deficit of 19 legs so there are 19 cows leaving 75 horses. Check: 75 x 4 + 19 x 3 = 300 + 57 QED


On a farm there are three-legged-cows and horses There are total of 96 heads and 313 legs How many three-legged-cows are on the farm?

There are 96 heads, so 96 animals. If all were horses, that would be 4 x 96 = 384 legs, but there are only 313 legs, which means there are 384-313 = 71 legs short or 71 cows and 25 horses. Mathematically, let x = horses and y = cows x + y = 96 4x + 3y = 313 multiply first equation by 4: 4x + 4y = 384 4x + 3y = 313 subtract equations y = 71 = cows x = 25 = horses
