Hens and pigs

Hens and pigs have 46 feet in total. At least how much can heads have?

Result

n =  12

Solution:

46=2s+4p p=46/4=232=11.5  p1=p=11.5=11 s1=(464 p1)/2=(464 11)/2=1  n=s1+p1=1+11=1246=2s+4p \ \\ p=46/4=\dfrac{ 23 }{ 2 }=11.5 \ \\ \ \\ p_{1}=\lfloor p \rfloor=\lfloor 11.5 \rfloor=11 \ \\ s_{1}=(46 - 4 \cdot \ p_{1})/2=(46 - 4 \cdot \ 11)/2=1 \ \\ \ \\ n=s_{1}+p_{1}=1+11=12
