## Cowboy Cows

Two cowboys live next door to each other and both have a corral for their cows in the back. One day they meet at the back of their homes, standing next to a wall dividing their corrals. The first cowboy gets to thinking and asks his neighbor for a cow so he can double his herd. The other cowboys replies, Thats fine by me partner, cuz then well have the same number of cows? How many cows does each cowboy own?

Hint:

We’ll use A to represent the first cowboy and B for the second cowboy.

A + 1 = 2A, so A = 1.

A + 1 = B – 1, so B = 3.

YES NO

A + 1 = 2A, so A = 1.

A + 1 = B – 1, so B = 3.
