The word One has 3 letters, in the word three there are 5 letters, in the word five there are four letters and four has four letters in it as well. Whatever number you'll go back to four, and that's why it's the magic number.
Susan uses a toaster that has 2 slots. The toaster toasts one side of each piece of bread at a time, and it takes exactly 1 minute to do so.
If Susan wants to make three pieces of toast, what is the LEAST amount of time she needs to toast them on both sides?
She puts two pieces in the toaster, toasting one side of each. Then she flips one of them, takesone out, and puts the completely untoasted piece into the toaster. Finally, she takes out the toasted piece and puts the two half-toasted pieces of bread into the toaster for a minute and she's done.
Iam a fruit. If you had two of me, I would sound just the same. If you rearrange my letters, it could be a crime. Add me to a montage and I can become a different fruit. Remove my head and you can still listen; takeaway the end and I can still be eaten. Without a piece of the center, Iam still a word; takeaway all
of the middle and Iam just an acronym. What amI?
Mike has some chickens that have been laying him plenty of eggs. He wants to give away his eggs to several of his friends, but he wants to give them all the same number of eggs. He figures out that he needs to give 7 of his friends eggs for them to get the same amount, otherwise there is 1 extra egg left.
What is the least number of eggs he needs for this to be true?
The number of eggs must be one more than a number that is divisible by 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 since each of these numbers leave a remainder of 1.
For this to be true one less than the number must be divisible by 5, 4, and 3 (6 is 2*3 and 2 is a factor of 4 so they will automatically be a factor). 5 * 4 * 3 = 60. Then you just must find a multiple of 60 such that 60 * n + 1 is divisible by 7. 61 / 7, 121 / 7, 181 / 7, 241 / 7 all leave remainders but 301 / 7 doesn't.
