Jon's MENSA Question of the Day

--posted by JRJ on 12/06/2005

The farmers were bringing their fowl to market to sell for Christmas dinner, all nicely frozen, of course. Farmer Jones had three plump, nice fowl and had managed to simplify her pricing by getting them all to the identical weight. Farmer Smith had geese, four of them, and he, too, had all of them at the same weight, which was different from that of Farmer Jones's birds. Three fowl from Farmer Jones and four fowl from Farmer Smith weighed 38 pounds. On the other hand, if Farmer Jones had had four fowl and Farmer Smith had had three, the combined weight would have been 39 pounds. How much did each of Farmer Jones's fowl weigh?
