# Cow Sheep Goat Camel Math Puzzle | with Answer

### Cow Sheep Goat Camel Math Puzzle

**ANSWER**

480 is the answer

__Explanation__

Let, Cow = x ; Sheep = y ; Goat = a ; Camel = b

We have to find the value of Camel = b.

Equation 1: x + y = 240

Equation 2: a + b = 500

Equation 3: b - y + a = 455

Equation 4: x + a = 215

From equation 2, we get: b = 500 - a

From equation 4, we get x = 215 - a

From equation 1, we get: y = 240 - x

=> y = 240 - (215 - a)

=> y = 25 + a --> equation 5

**On Solving Equation 3, we get:**

=> (500 - a) - (25 + a) + a = 455

=> 500 - a - 25 - a + a = 455

=> 500 - a - 25 = 455

=> a = 20

**On Solving Equation 2, we get:**

=> 20 + b = 500

=> b = 480

Therefore, Camel = 480.
