Cattle
.
Hiram B. Judkins, a
cattledealer of Texas, had five droves of animals, consisting of oxen,
pigs, and sheep, with the same number of animals in each drove.
One
morning he sold all that he had to eight dealers.
Each dealer bought
the same number of animals, paying seventeen dollars for each ox, four
dollars for each pig, and two dollars for each sheep; and Hiram
received in all three hundred and one dollars.
What is the greatest
number of animals he could have had?
And how many would there be of
each kind?
