# What will be Number of Pigeons in the Zoo? If

In a Zoo there are rabbits and pigeons. If their heads are counted, there are 90 while their legs are 224. Find the number of pigeons in the zoo?

- 50
- 68
- 60
- 65

**Answer: (2) 68**

**Explanation:-**

Let the number of pigeons is X and the number of rabbits is Y

The total number of head = 90

Then, X + Y = 90 ……………………………….. (1)

The number of legs = 224

Then, 2 X + 4 Y = 224

Both side divide by 2,

X + 2 Y = 112 ……………………………………………… (2)

Solve equation (1) & (2)

Y = 22 & X = 90 – 22 = 68

Then, the number of pigeon in the zoo is 68.

Hence, the answer is (2) 68.
