Let C = # of Chickens and R = # of Rabbits
Let CL = # of Chicken Legs and RL = # of Rabbit Legs
C + R = 52 (each chicken and each rabbit have a head)
R = 52 - C
CL = 2C (each chicken has 2 legs)
RL = 4R (each rabbit has 4 legs)

CL + RL = 148
2C + 4 (52 - C) = 148
-2C + 208 = 148
C = 30

R = 52 - C = 52 - 30
= 22

There are 30 chickens and 22 rabbits.

### The oven door has fallen off and we need a replacement silver bracket to refix the door back together

Maybe pencil sketch the other bracket or picture of it. Might be able to get another at hardware store. Menards, even a farm store might carry them. Usually little parts can be used for a chicken coop or rabbit pen. Might have luck lookin for your small bracket part.

### How to solve? john has a total of 480 chicken and cows on a farm. They have 1260 legs altogether. how many chickens than cows there are?

There are 330 chickens and 150 cows, so there are 180 more chickens than cows. Since this sounds like a homework problem, you'll have to show your work.

### How to solve this problem in a different way,A FARM BOY TENDS PIGS AND CHICKENS IN THEIR YARD,hE COUNTED 21 HEADS AND 54 FEET. hOW MANY PIGS AND CHICkENs ARE THERE?pls.share me a strategy without using...

P = number of pigs

Then P is the number of pig-heads, and 4*P is the number of pigs-feet.

C = number of chickens

Then C is the number of chicken-heads, and 2*C is the number of chicken-feet.

Thus: 21 = P + C

Equivalently: 42 = 2*P + 2*C

Also: 54 = 4*P + 2*C

Thus (54-42) = 4*P + 2*C - 2*P - 2*C

Factoring: 12 = 2*P + ( 2*C - 2*C)

Reducing: 6 = P
------------------------------------------------

Or, do it on graph-paper, with 'P' on the X-axis and 'C' on the Y-axis,
and each unit representing one animal (pig or chicken).

Draw one line between (0,21) and (21,0) (no pigs & 21 chickens, versus 21 pigs & 0 chickens)

Draw one line between (0,27) [no pigs and 27 pairs of chicken-feet]
and (13,1) [13 pigs have 52 feet, with 1 pair of chicken-feet]

The two lines cross at exactly one point on the graph, namely at the solution.

### How to make a scarecrow out of chicken wire?

Just noticed that this was from 2009. I thought I'd answer it anyway. As a pack rat & artist (art studio major in college), I'm always making something, lol!
First, decide:
How much money you have or want to spend on materials. Can you get some materials for free? Can you recycle materials from other items?
How large is your display area? How large do you want your piece to be & how it is to be positioned (sitting, standing, hanging on a pole?)
Also, if you already have some of the materials you'll need (like the chicken wire), are you going to be restricted on the size if you do not plan to acquire more?
Measure, measure, then cut! For example, If you have decided to use an old pair of your hubby's bluejeans or overalls & he is 6' 4", that's two 34"-36" long pieces of chicken wire you'll need for each leg - what about the diameter of the legs at the thigh at about 30" - you can cut two straight pieces of wire 30"wx36"L & just roll the diameter tighter as you approach the ankles. All you really need is a body framework, as it will be covered by clothing. You can always alter the length of the pants or shirt sleeves by folding the cuffs up.
For a straight standing or hanging scarecrow, you could scrap the chicken wire idea all together & go with a traditional mop - attach a wire coat hanger (to make shoulders/have something to hang the shirt on) to the mop by inserting the "crook" part into the base of the mop head, or stapling or taping with duct tape, lay the clothing on floor, insert mop, put shirt onto hanger, stuff the clothing with hay or newspaper (then just have some hay sticking out under the hat, at the shirt cuffs, & at the feet). Tie with twine at wrists & ankles (maybe the waist, too if using jeans). Stuff the mop head into a burlap bag, tie down at neck, draw on facial features, make slits in bag & pull the "hair" though the slits - just enough to show if he/she will be wearing a hat.
You can make the entire body out of chicken wire & stuff with newspaper as you go (before connecting the body parts together).
Head - cover the chicken wire head with a burlap bag or any cloth that suits you & tie it at the neck with a piece of twine or ribbon.
Draw the facial features, then remove the cloth & lay flat so you can
fill in with color, either use paint or markers. Let dry.
For clothing, adult or kid size - If you don't have clothing you can use already, ask friends or family! Next, I would go to a Goodwill or dollar store. Straw hat (or other suitable type), plaid or solid long sleeve shirt, old work gloves, coveralls, overalls or bluejeans, could hang a bandana around the neck or out of a pocket. Feet or no feet? An old pair of work boots would be great.
Hope this helps someone!

### HOW DO I ROAST A CHICKEN IN A AC925CHS

Search the internet for “roast chicken recipe for microwave”
Here is one just in case you don’t find one:
Microwave Roast Chicken
3 lbs. chicken
1 tsp. salt
4 tbsp. butter or margarine
1 tsp. paprika

Instructions
Melt butter in a custard cup in microwave. Mix paprika into melted butter. Wash chicken (reserve giblets, these are best cooked conventionally). Sprinkle inside of chicken with salt. Cover ends of legs, tail, and wings with small pieces of saran wrap or wax paper. Place trivet on inverted saucer or small casserole lid in 12 x 7 inch baking dish. Place chicken breast side down on saucers. Brush with butter. Cover with waxed paper. Cook 12 minutes. Remove wax paper or saran warp from legs, tail, and wings. Turn chicken breast side up and brush with butter. Cover with wax paper and cook 12 minutes more or until meat thermometer registers 180 degrees (temperature will increase to 195 degrees during standing).

DO NOT USE MEAT THERMOMETER IN OVEN WHEN COOKING!! Remove chicken from oven; cover with aluminum foil and let stand 15 to 20 minutes before carving. Note: For other weights of chicken, allow 8 minutes cooking time per pound.
