A) 32 B) 24
C) 26 D) 38
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 32

solving (1)&(2), we get
K = 32 and L = 12

Hence the largest number is 32.

There are several peacocks and deers in a cage (with no other types of animals). There are 72 heads and 200 feet inside the cage. How many peacocks are there, and how many deers ?

A) 42 & 24 B) 38 & 26

2x + 288 - 4x = 200
x = 44 peacocks
y = 28 deers
