White cows give the most milk.

5 white cows is the same as 8 black cows.

White cow gives most milk.

Explanation:

5(4b + 3 w) = 4(3b + 5w)

20b + 15w = 12b + 20w

8b = 5w

b/w = 5/8 <1

so, b/w <1

b<w

Haha, yes, I guess you could accuse me of being racist, BUT then I'd send Billy Bob up yonder in his pickup truck and there'd be some fightin' goin' on. BUT, I do work on the top floor of one of the nation's most "up and coming" biotech centers. My window overlooks a bunch of other buildings, BUT if I go down to my lab on the NW corner of the building, I can see cows. If I go to the conference room in the NE corner and the trees are not in bloom, I can see even more cows.

I don't have to worry about this so much, but forensic pathologists in this state have it rough - everyone has the same DNA! :)

The white cows.

It's given that:

5*(4b+3w)=4*(3b+5w),so 8 black cows give the same amount of milk like 5 white cows,hence:

1,6 black cows give milk like 1 white.
