before we continue what are your credentials?? if you dont mind me asking
Let A be number of humans, B be number of horses
human has 2 legs, horse has 4 legs
A+B = 74
2A+4B = 196
solve system using substitution or elimination
credentials? college degree in math

so to be clear how man humans and how many horses?
you have to solve system of 2 equations with 2 unknowns
Multiply top equation by -2, then add the equation to eliminate variable A
-2A -2B = -148
2A + 4B = 196
2B = 48
Solve this for B, then substitute back in to find A
can you take it from here?
id like you to continue ma'am/or sir!
B = 48/2
B = 24
A+B = 74
A+24 = 74
A = 74-24 = 50
There are 50 humans and 24 horses
you happen to be right b/c i was also computing the question as well
in your honest opinion was this question hard for you?
sounds like you are taking a survey or something?
do you really need help in math??
no this was not hard for me, but im here to help not ask questions
