One rabbit saw 6 elephants while going towards a river. Every elephant saw 2 monkeys, going towards the river. Every monkey holds one turtle in their hands. How many animals are going towards the river?

SOLUTION!

Solution:

5 is the correct answer!

1 rabbit is going towards the river, not the 6 elephants. And, these 6 elephants saw 2 monkeys going towards the river. They also noticed that each monkey is holding 1 turtle.

Hence, the total number of animals going towards the river are 1 rabbit, 2 monkeys and 2 turtles.

Therefore,

1+2+2=5!
