On Tuesday 6 February 60, gifted mathematicians from years 9, 10 and 11 competed in the UKMT Intermediate Mathematics Challenge. They had to answer multiple-choice questions like 'Farmer Fatima rears chickens and goats. Today she returned from market and said, “I sold 80 animals, and now there are 200 fewer legs on my farm than before!” How many goats did she sell? A) 15   B) 20   C) 25   D) 30   E) 35
