equations are
x+y+z = 100
.50x + 3.5y + 10z =100

This is a Systems of Equations problem that is missinginformation we can only create 2 possible Equations out of theinformation given. Let a = # of Chickens Let b= # of Goats,and Let c= # of Cows puchased. We will move the decimalto places to the right and allow 50 to equal $.50, 350 toequal $3.50, 1000 to equal $10.00 also 10000 to equal $100.00
a+b+c=100
50a+350b+1000c=10000
