A farmer has 30 animals consisting of chickens and cows. The animals have 74 legs in total. Find out the number of chickens and cows the farmer has.
23 Chickens and 7 Cows.
Let the number of chicken be X and number of cows be Y. Chickens have 2 and cows have 4 legs. Based on this, we can come up with 2 equations:
- 2X + 4Y = 74
- X + Y = 30
Solving for X and Y will give 23 and 7 respectively.
