Sixth Grade Challenging Math

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

6-34)  Answer

Ling has 3 rabbits and 5 chickens.

Solution:
First assume Ling has only chickens and no rabbits. 

8 chickens would have 16 feet.  However, since there are 22 feet in all, there are 6 extra feet (22 - 16 = 6).

Each rabbit has 2 additional feet compared with a chicken. Therefore, there has to be 3 (6 divided by 2) rabbits.

So Ling has 3 rabbits and 5 chickens.
