One day, a person went to horse racing area, Instead of counting the number of human and horses, he instead counted 74 heads and 196 legs. Yet he knew the number of humans and horses there. How did he do it, and how many humans and horses are there?

answer:i made this so wathc

Let's assume that HM = Human and

HR = Horse

HM + HR = 74

2HM + 4HR = 196

(2HM + 4HR) - (2 HM + 2HR) = 196 - 148

2HR = 48

HR = 24

HM + (24) = 74

HM = 74 - 24

HM = 50

So, the solution is 24 horses and 50 humans.
