She discovered that sheep cost $0.50 each, cattle cost $1.00 each, and horses cost $10.00 each. This purchase, to buy exactly 100 animals for $100 and have some of each kind of animal, proved more difficult that she had thought it would be. Your job is to find a solution to Farmer Ann’s dilemma. A good method to solve this type of problem is to use guess and check. There are several possible ways and the one we are going to use is to guess some total of animals that add up to 100. From those three numbers determine what your overall price is. Based on whether it was too high or too low, you can now switch out some animals and make another guess. Make at least 10 guesses to determine a correct answer to this problem. For each guess you must have a total of 100 animals. There is more than one right answer, so keep guessing even if you guess correctly early on. Cattle ($1) Sheep ($0.50) Horses ($10) Total $$$ Guess 1 Guess 2 Guess 3 Guess 4 Guess 5 Guess 6 Guess 7 Guess 8 Guess 9 Guess 10 Guess 11 Guess 12 Guess 13 Guess 14 Guess 15

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
