Sixth Grade Challenging Math

634) 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.
