Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's possible. It's just that you can't (maybe yet).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I bet you can't show us a solution that doesn't use equations, if not explicitly then implicitly

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let me try this and see if it works. i think it is really no different from solving the equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Diagram method: 1. Draw 35 circles, representing heads. Each animal must have at least 2 legs (assume animals are in good condition). 2. Draw 2 "sticks" out of each circle, representing legs. 3. Keep drawing legs until the number of legs reach 94. 4. COUNT.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Right .... what I should have asked is : "Why solve it without equations?" It's clearly much faster than barnyard drawings.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i am fairly certain it is the same. divide by two and subtract, but it does kind of look cool just writing the answer down without variables. i like it
