 karthi   c=18 and s=9 is the correct answer radhika...legs count of chicken=36(18*2),legs count of sheep=36(9*4),so total=72+(head count of both sheep and chicken=27(18+9))=99:).... 7 years ago

 sankho upadhyay   let number of chicken = x Heads of chicken = x, Legs of chicken = 2x. let number of sheeps = y Head of sheeps = y and legs of sheeps = 4y Total head + legs = 3x+5y = 99.......(i) [Given] There is twice as many chickens as sheeps. => x = 2y..........(ii) From equation (i) and (ii), we get x = 18, y = 9 Answer. 7 years ago
 bikramjit   9 sheeps and 18 chickens 7 years ago
 Deepak Yadav   18 chickens and 9 sheep since 18*2+9*4+27=99 7 years ago
 ALIVIA GUIN   let number of sheep=x number of chicken=y total number of legs of sheep=4x total number legs of chickens=2y total number of heads=(x+y) since the given data is total number of heads and feets of chickens and sheep=99 therefore, (x+y)+4x+2y=99 5x+3y=99...........(i) from the 2nd given condition it is giventhat there are twice as many chickens as sheep, so we get:- y=2x...........(ii) solving equation (i) and (ii) we get x=9, y=18 i.e. number of sheep=9 number of chickens=18 7 years ago

 Manas Kumar Uttarkabat   s=sheeps c=chickens 2s=c ------------(1) 5s+3c=99----------(2) i.e. for sheeps(4 feets+1 head) nd chickens(2 feets+ 1head) Solving (1) and (2) s=9 c=18 5 years ago
 shankari   let the sheep be x let the chicken be y total no. of sheeps nd chicken be x+y=99 twice the chicken be 2x x+2x=99 3x=99 x=33 2x=66 chickens=66 sheeps=33 5 years ago

 Rupendra Pandey   let number of chicken = x Heads of chicken = x, Legs of chicken = 2x. let number of sheeps = y Head of sheeps = y and legs of sheeps = 4y Total head + legs = 3x+5y = 99.......(i) [Given] There is twice as many chickens as sheeps. => x = 2y..........(ii) From equation (i) and (ii), we get x = 18, y = 9 since head+legs =99 head=18+9=27 and legs=18*2+9*4=72 4 years ago

 Sourjya Dutta   sheep=x chicken=2*x 1 sheep has 1 head and 4 legs x sheep has x heads and 4x legs total x+4x 2x chicken has 2*2X=4x legs and 2x heads total 4x+2x so total x+4x+4x+2x=99 x=9//sheep x=18//chicken 3 years ago
