- Suppose Moomahata has 3 birds and Meemahata has 2 birds. One the birds that Meemahata has is named Moomahata and the other is named Meemahata. The birds that Moomahata have are named: Meemahata, Moomahata, Meomahata. Suppose that Moomahata has $7 per bird and the bird named Moomahata has $2 per Meemahata. If Meemahata has $3 per bird and an additional $1 per Meemahata, then how much money does the bird Meemahata that is owned by Moomahata have?
