Let total number of birds = x. let no. of sparrows = s, pigeons = p, ducks = d. Given s = x-6. d = x-6. p = x-6. s+d+p = x = 3x-18. So x = 9. There are 9 birds in all. |

All sparrow but 6 are not sparrows = 6 = p+d. All sparrow but 6 are not pigeons = 6 = s+d. All sparrow but 6 are not ducks = 6 = p+s. So total birds are = 6+6+6 = 18. i.e p+d+s+d+p+s = 18. = 2(p+d+s) = 18. P+d+s = 9. i.e possibility of 9 in equality is 3=p, 3=d, 3=s. |

Let total number of birds = x. Let no of sparrows = s, pigeons = p, ducks = d. Given s = x - 6. d = x - 6. p = x - 6. s + d + p = x = 3x - 18. So x = 9. There are 9 birds in all. |

Let a total number of birds = x. Let no of sparrows = s, pigeons = p, ducks = d. Given s = x - 6. d = x - 6. p = x - 6. s + d + p = x = 3x - 18. So x = 9. There are 9 birds in all. Let a total number of birds = x. Let no of sparrows = s, pigeons = p, ducks = d. Given s = x - 6. d = x - 6. p = x - 6. s + d + p = x = 3x - 18. So x = 9. There are 9 birds in all. |

This sentence "all sparrows but six" it simply means that " all sparrows but six are other birds" So number of sparrows will be, S = total -6; P = total-6; D = total-6; S+P+D = total. So by solving we get, Total = 9 birds. |

There are 9 birds in all. Let a total number of birds = x. Let no of sparrows = s, pigeons = p, ducks = d. Given s = x - 6. d = x - 6. p = x - 6. s + d + p = x = 3x - 18. So x = 9. There are 9 birds in all. |
