  • Jeremiah Deckard

    Twice four = 8
    Plus 20 = 28
    Divide by four= 7
    28 – 7 = 21

  • Jeremiah Deckard

    Or none cause the shot would scare them off

  • matthew

    28. They are still there even if they are dead.

  • I am going to give this one to Jeremiah. You are today’s winner.
    You did have the right thinking and there is even two solutions depending on your interpretation.
    Since, after shooting 1/4 of the birds, the rest will fly off, the answer should be either (2*(4+20))/4=12 or ((2*4)+20)/4=7.
    Your answer of 21 is how many flew off if he shot 7.
    He shot either 7 or 12.

  • matthew

    Or 7 since the rest flew off.

  • mshaw

    None…they all flew away.

  • Answer will be 7 as the dead will remain and the others will fly away.
