Let __x__ be the number of __pigs__

__9-x__ be the number of __cows__

__10-(9-x) or x+1__ be the number of __horses__

x + 9 - x + x + 1 = 16

9 + x + 1 = 16

x + 10 = 16

x = 16 - 10

**x = 6**

**9 - x = 3**

**x + 1 = 7**

**Therefore, there are 6 pigs, 3 cows and 7 horses**

x + 9 - x + x + 1 = 16

9 + x + 1 = 16

x + 10 = 16

x = 16 - 10

19 po kasi 16 yung animals di naman sinabi kung cow ba yun
