A calamity took a toll on 100 people who were brought to the same hospital. Out of the 100 patients, a few had lost their one leg. From the rest of the patients, half lost both their legs.

Can you calculate how many legs in total do the patients have now?

This is a simple problem that can be solved using average.

The average number of legs per patient who lost one leg is 1.

In the remaining patients, half people dont have a single leg and half have 2 legs. Therefore, the average leg per patient is 1 in this case as well.

Therefore, in total, the average number of legs per patient is 1.
Since there are 100 patients, the number of legs = 100.
