There are twenty-two more chickens than cows. The number of cows and chickens combined is 98. How many are chickens?

Cows = C

Chickens = C + 22

C + (C + 22) = 98

2C + 22 = 98

2C = 98 - 22

2C = 76

C = 76 / 2 = 38 =number of cows

c + 28 = 38 + 22 = 60 = number of chickens

I got the same thing, see my answer below!

This gives us that 2c (c=cows) + 22= 98

So, 76 = 2c

c = 38

To have the number be the number of chickens instead of cows, we add 22+38. This gives us that there are 60 chickens.
