# Rabbits in the Pen

##### Age 7 to 11 Challenge Level:

Here are $6$ different rabbits waiting to go to a home. They are in a pen in a pet shop. You'll see $2$ brown, $2$ black and $2$ grey. There is a floppy-eared one and an ordinary one of each colour.

Let's imagine that rabbits can only be one of these $6$ different kinds and there are no other kinds of rabbits. Then:

How many, and of what kind, will there be in a pen if all these statements are true?
• There are more brown than any other colour
• There are equal numbers of floppy browns and ordinary browns
• There are three which have floppy ears
• There are twice as many floppy browns as floppy whites
• There are three times as many blacks as whites

How many, and of what kind, will there be in the second shop if all these statements are true?

• There are the same number of blacks as browns
• There are twice as many floppy browns as ordinary browns
• There are the same number of floppy browns as floppy greys
• All but one are floppy
