## Check out how people reacted to this brain teaser here:

“54 kg,” wrote an individual. To this, another person replied, “That’s the weight of two of each. You add up the number = 54, but that’s the weight of two dogs plus two rabbits and two ducks.”

Another added, “X - Rabbit, Y - Duck, Z - Dog. X+Y= 10, X+Z= 20, Y+Z= 24, X+Y+Z= ? (X+Y)+(X+Z)+(Y+Z) = 10+20+24, 2X+2Y+2Z=54/2. X+Y+Z = 27.”

“Rabbit + duck = 10. Rabbit + dog = 20. From there, we get that dog = duck + 10. Which can be written as duck + dog = 2 duck + 10. Duck + dog = 24 Then, duck + (duck + 10) = 24 or 2 duck + 10 = 24. There, we get duck = 7. Then, we know that dog = 17 duck + Rabbit = 10. So, rabbit = 3. So, the answer is 3 + 7 + 17, which equals 27,” explained a third.
