Puzzle/Riddle of Ramayana

*Maths riddle of Ramayana

Before Vibheeshan and his Rakshasha forces joined Rama’s forces at the Indian coast, a spy of Raavan checked out Rama’s army.

“How many are they?” Raavan said.

The spy said, “As I was hiding, I could only see the lower side. I could count 1,404 legs and 600 (small and long) tails. Somehow, it is *not matching up.*”

Ravana said, “You fool, unlike humans and Vaanaras (monkeys), bears stand on their four limbs. And, while Vaanaras have long tails, bears have short ones. Don’t worry, I have guessed their numbers.”

*How many Vaanaras and bears are there in Rama and Lakshman’s army?*

Lets Assume
number of Vanaras = x
number of Bears = y

x+y=600
4x+2y=1404
=> 2x+y=702
x=102
y=498

number of Vanaras = 102
number of Bears = 498
