In a Group of Buffaloes and Ducks, the Number of Legs are 24 More than Twice the Number of Heads. What is the Number of Buffaloes in the Group?

What are you looking for? Let’s dig in quickly

Explanation

Let suppose “b” represents buffalo and “d” ducks. Each buffalo has 4 legs (4b) and each duck has 2 legs (2d). So in the group of buffaloes and ducks, total legs will be “4b + 2d” and total heads “b + d”. Now condition of the question says;

4b + 2d – 24 = 2(b + d)

Through this equation, we can easily figure out buffaloes.

To Find

Buffaloes = ?

Solution

Let suppose

Buffalo = b

Duck = d

Total legs = 4b + 2d

Total heads = b + d

According to given condition;

4b + 2d – 24 = 2 (b + d)

4b + 2d – 24 = 2b + 2d

4b – 24 = 2b

4b – 2b = 24

2b = 24

b = 24/2

b = 12 answer

Conclusion

In a group of buffaloes and ducks, the number of legs are 24 more than twice the number of heads. There will be 12 buffaloes in the group of ducks and buffaloes.
