On Friday I posted this puzzle….
I have a cage in my garden and it contains only chickens and rabbits (I don’t really, but play along). There are 72 heads and 200 feet in the cage. How many chickens are there, and how many rabbits?
If you have not tried to solve it, have a go now. For everyone else the answer is after the break.
There are 44 chickens and 28 rabbits in my cage. Did you solve it? And if so, how?
I have produced an ebook containing 101 of the previous Friday Puzzles! It is called PUZZLED and is available for the Kindle (UK here and USA here) and on the iBookstore (UK here in the USA here). You can try 101 of the puzzles for free here.
