Answer:The total heads of cattle = 120 headsStep-by-step explanation:Let the total heads of cattle = x

One-third of the rancher’s cattle Are calves

The total heads of calves = ⇒ (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)

= 40 ⇒ multiply both side by 3

∴ x = 3 * 40 = 120

∴The total heads of cattle = 120 heads
