Hey there math lovers,

Figured it out with the help of previous thread

(Shall share the method just in case to those who are wondering)

26 legs - 2 legs (extra 1 duck) = 24 leg remain
1 goat = 2 ducks (a total of 8 legs)

24/8 = 3

No. of goats = 3 goats
No. of ducks = (3 x 2) + 1 extra = 7 ducks
