A Bird Shooter Was Asked How Many Birds He Had In The Bag. He Replied That There Were All Sparrows But Six, All Pigeons But Six, And All Ducks But Six. How Many Birds He Had In The Bag In All?

Let the birds in the bag be – x

As given in the question:

Number of sparrows = x − 6

Number of pigeons = x − 6

Number of ducks = x − 6

Therefore, the total number of birds = Number of sparrows + Number of pigeons + Number of ducks.

= x = x – 6 + x – 6 + x – 6

= 2x = 18

= x = 18 / 2

x = 9
