Legs

In the room are four-legged chairs, three-legged stool, and all are sitted with (one) people. I counted all the leg room and there were a total of 39. How many are there chairs, stool and people?

Correct answer:

x =  4
y =  3
z =  7

Step-by-step explanation:

39=(4+2)x+(3+2)y z=x+y  x=4;y=3 z=x+y=4+3=7
z=4+3=7
