Q.

There are some owls and some lions in a forest. If the total number of heads in the forest is 1460 and total number of legs is 4580. What is the total number of owls in the forest?

A 630
B 830
C 930
D 960
Answer & Explanation
Option: [A]

Let us take the total number of owls is = x

and total number of lions is = y

Then, x + y = 1460 --------(i)

We know that a owl has 2 legs and a lion has 4 legs.

So, the total number of legs of owl is = 2x

and the total number of legs of lion is = 4x

So, 2x + 4x = 4580 --------(ii)

Solving the equation (i) and (ii) we get,

x = 630 and y = 830

So the total number of owls is = 630
