I wanted to share it with my blog visitors. And, I agree with this! .. I just wish I had noticed it myself! Thanks CCSIMath!<br /><br />Here is the comment ---<br /><br />The question is faulty. Answer J shows one combination of possible numbers of each type of animal, but it is not the only possible combination.<br />Wording matters. The question "Which list shows THE number…" misleadingly implies there is a unique answer, but there are infinitely many.<br />For instance, there could be 16 cows, 4 horses and 2 pigs.Susan Carrikerhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/06775938715698418077noreply@blogger.com
