Birds and cats 2010-02-13
Sophia pose la question :
While visiting a pet store, you notice that there are only birds and cats in the cages. You can't help but wonder how many of each animal there is in the yard. But when you ask the store manager how many of each animal he has, he refuses to give a direct answer. He says there are 16 animal heads and 42 animal feet. How many birds and cats are there in the pet store? It said to show all your work. Explain in words how you found your answer. Tell why you took the steps you did to solve the problem.

Chickens and cows 2007-02-08
Norman pose la question :
My grandson is testing me on a question he recently solved.

The question is "A farmer has cows and chickens - there are 252 heads and 81 legs - how many of each animal does he have?"

I immediately thought of the quadratic equations I learned 50 years ago at school, but cannot remember how to do it. It is further complicated by the fact that 1 animal must have 3 legs as the total number of legs is 81 (or perhaps he his trying to catch me out) Any helpful advice would be welcome.

Many thanks
