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

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.
