    Answer:

    The total heads of cattle = 120 heads

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let the total heads of cattle = x

    One-third of the rancher’s cattle Are calves

    The total heads of calves = \frac{1}{3} x  ⇒ (1)

    But, the rancher puts 2 calves in each of his 20 stalls

    ∴ The total heads of calves = 2 * 20 = 40  ⇒(2)

    From (1) and (2)

    \frac{1}{3} x = 40  ⇒ multiply both side by 3

    ∴ x = 3 * 40 = 120

    ∴The total heads of cattle = 120 heads
