## 3 Solutions

Assume
number of Cows are X
number of chickens are Y

Now we have two equations
X + Y = 25
4X + 2Y = 72

On solving these two we find X=11 and Y=14 so answer is 11 Cow and 14 chicken

Let the number of cows be X and number of Chickens be Y

then,

X + Y = 25
4X + 2Y = 72

by, solving these two, we will get X = 11 and Y = 14

You've bought your weekly egg supply at the local farm store. The first morning you have company for breakfast and use half the eggs plus one-half an egg. The next morning you use one-half of what's left plus one-half an egg. The third morning you use one-half of what's left plus one-half an egg, and on the fourth morning, you're down to one solitary egg, so you make French toast. In all this cooking, you've never had one-half an egg to carry over to the next day.
