Explanation:

Let the number of rabbits and peacocks be ‘r’ and ‘p’ respectively. As each animal has only one head, so r + p = 60 — (1)

Each rabbit has 4 legs and each peacock has 2 legs. Total number of legs of rabbits and peacocks, 4r + 2p = 192 — (2)

Multiplying equation (1) by 2 and subtracting it from equation (2), we get

=> 2r = 72 => r = 36.
