A cricket has 6 legs, a squirrel has 4 legs and a spider has 8 legs.

In a local zoo, it was found that the total number of legs is 612. Also, there are equal number of each of the above animals/insects.

Can you find out how many animals are there in the zoo?

There are a total of 102 animals and 34 of each kind.

Since we know that the number of each animal is equal. Therefore, each cricket, squirrel and spider will be having 18 legs.

Now, 612/18 = 34 of each animal.

Therefore, number of animals in total = 34 * 3 = 102.
