    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.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Uhh...just one, the explorer. All theothers were native to the 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

    Most of us do this in our head.
