Correction - I have an answer for No.3 but I think it is a trick question

Nemo:

Since the question was "put 15 sheep in 4 pens and have the same amount of sheep in each pen"...could that not also mean to put 15 sheep into one pen and then 15 in a second...and 15 in the third pen...and 15 in the 4th pen ?

Just a suggestion...

... does the real answer involve an industrial mincing machine - like that chap with the hard hat and utility-belt from Village People?

That's good lateral thinking Howard - and when you see the answers to some of the other questions, I can well believe that that would be the answer

Is anyone going to try another Q or are we focussing on the sheep?

In fact - I'll give you the answer to number 1 to show you what I mean


1) Divide 2 by 5 so the answer will be 1000


A) Using Roman numerals... II divided by V (ie put the V in the middle) creates M which is 1000... (Groan!)

With number 3, the hours of a clock go 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. They get closer to ten numerically but 1 is closer to 10 spatially. However, a drawback is that they only go from left to right up to 3. After 3, they go right to left.

Blimey Robert! That's a good theory regarding the clock face

It does say arrange them so that they read left to right though so I don't think that is the answer

I have an answer that is similar in a way to your "spatially nearer" concept

I don't have the definitive answer to the sheep Q - Your guess is as good as mine really

My answer for 3) would be...


1 3 5 7 9

Number 1 is nearer to ten because you only have to add a nought/zero to it

ie 1<--------0 = 10

Whereas you have to add 1 to 9 to make it 10


(a bit crap I know)


I haven't worked out the board one yet..

How can a board 135" square be changed into a board 144" square?

I imagine it is something to do with the board being 1" in depth(?)
