IMPROVE YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING AND LATERAL THINKING SKILLS help!!

Hello whoever you are can you help me on this question? I find it difficult.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------In the town of Cashless they trade instead of using money. Here is the value of trading items.
~ 1 monkey = 3 pigs
~ 6 pigs = 12 cows
~ 16 cows = 10 chickens
~ 25 chickens = 50 shells

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Can you please post the answer? It's for an exam. Thanx.

There's no question.


Boy let me tell you what:
I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.
And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.

Re: IMPROVE YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING AND LATERAL THINKING SKILLS help!!

Cool. Without a question I can make up my own answers:

1 pig = 2 cows
1 chicken = 1.6 cows = 2 shells

The most valuable thing seems to be a monkey.

1 monkey = 3 pigs = 6 cows = 3.75 chickens = 7.5 shells
