Answer / guest

20 cows

g - grass at the beginning
r - rate at which grass grows, per day
y - rate at which one cow eats grass, per day
n - no of cows to eat the grass in 96 days

From given data,
g + 24*r = 70 * 24 * y ---------- A
g + 60*r = 30 * 60 * y ---------- B
g + 96*r = n * 96 * y ---------- C

Solving for (B-A),
(60 * r) - (24 * r) = (30 * 60 * y) - (70 * 24 * y)
36 * r = 120 * y ---------- D

Solving for (C-B),
(96 * r) - (60 * r) = (n * 96 * y) - (30 * 60 * y)
36 * r = (n * 96 - 30 * 60) * y
120 * y = (n * 96 - 30 * 60) * y [From D]
120 = (n * 96 - 1800)
n = 20

Hence, 20 cows are needed to eat the grass in 96 days.
