Solve it.

No cheating! and that means no google/interweb searches! Please be/stay honest! OK, A great space explorer found a new inhabited planet, he went to this planet and landed on the surface, while on his three hour visit he counted 139 males, 249 females, and 328 that had both male and female organs, in all how many aliens were on this planet.

And I was thinking substitution.


OK once again no searching and no trick here:

A farmer has some pigs and chickens. He sent his son and daughter to count how many of each he had. "I counted 70 heads," said the son. "And I counted 200 legs," said his daughter. How many pigs and how many chickens does the farmer actually have?

You have to show your work for full credit.

x + y = 70
2x + 2y = 140
2x + 4y = 200
2y = 60
y = 30
x = 40
