BTS: Farmers and their cows

This week, I have a tale of two farmers for you…

The two farmers, let’s call one John and the other Seamus, are both cattle farmers. One day, John says to Seamus; “Here’s an idea; how’s about you give me one of your cows? That way, I’ll have twice as many as you do.” Seamus counters “I don’t think so; instead, why don’t you give me one of yours; that way we will have the same number of cows.” How many cows did they each have to start with?

Last week, I left you without revealing who was arrested. It was, of course, the maid; there’s no mail delivery on Sundays.
