    5 Fences, 5 Angles x + 2x + 3x + 4x + 5x = 360º Go!

    You mean x + 2x + 3x + 4x + 5x = 540º Right?

    I don't think so. These appear to be vertex angles around the point of intersection, not interior angles around the perimeter of a pentagon. @shoxa27 Is there a drawing?

    I have no objection to your elephants. That's just what it says to me. Maybe you want to separate sheep, goats, horses, elephants, and pigs..

    Well, words mean things. If the problem statement means something else, it should say so.
