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.

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
