Should I assume that there are no other types of animals on the farm other than pigs or cows?

The stem tells you that there are 2/3 of 60 total animals that are either pigs or cows = 40 pigs or cows.

1) 2*C (> than) + P = 40 This by itself isn't enough.

2) P > 12, when combined with the first statement, p must be at least 13 which means C must be at least 27.

So 27+13 = 40, there are no other possibilities. So C is correct.

The OA is C.

Thanks Mathec for contributing to this question :)

I had misread the question to mean that there are either 40 cows or 40 pigs :( grrr....

Tricky wording.

If statement 1 were to read: The farm has twice as many cows as pigs, then it would be sufficient.
