    1. There are 5 Tripods and 4 Bipods. 5×3= 15 and 4×2=8, 15+8=23
    Silver
    2. Two combinations are as under:
    6 Tripods x 3 legs = 18, 3 Quadpods x 4 legs = 12 (18+12= 30)
    2 Tripods x 3 legs = 6, 6 Quadpods x 4 legs = 24 (6+24= 30)
    Gold
    3. Two combinations are as under:
    2 Hexpods x 6 legs = 12, 6 Octopods x 8 legs = 48 (48+12= 60)
    6 Hexpods x 6 legs = 36, 3 Octopods x 8 legs = 24 (36+24= 60)
