Re: FUN math puzzles!

Hi mathgogocart;

I do not know the answers that you have. Since I am taking the quiz it would not be fair for me to judge it.

Are you feeling okay, need any help?

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

You are trapped in a room with two doors...  One door lead to certain freedom and the other leads to a ton of worms that you'll have to eat.  You don't know which door goes to the worms and which door gets you out.

There are two guards in the room.  One guard always tells the truth and the other guard always lies.  You don't know which one is honest and which one is the liar.

If you just guessed, you'd have a 50-50 shot.

To figure out which door to choose, you get to ask one guard one question

What is your question and which guard will you ask?

2.A cat is at the bottom of a 20 foot well.  (Don't worry, he's got lots of food, water, catnip and spitty cat toys down there.)
Each day, he climbs up 5 feet...

And each night, he slides down 4 feet.

How many days will it take him to reach the top of the well?

1.There are six villages along the coast of the only perfectly round island in the known universe. The villages are evenly distributed along the coastline so that the distance between any two neighboring coastal villages is always the same. There is an absolutely straight path through the jungle connecting every pair of villages. These paths create thirteen crossings in the interior of the island, one of which is in the middle of the island where paths from every village meet.

The island has a strange courtship custom. Before a father will give permission for his daughter to marry, her suitor must bring the father a fish each day until he has traveled by every route from his village to the father's village. The young man only travels along routes where he is always getting closer to his destination. The young man may visit other villages along the way.

On April first a father's three sons come to tell him of their intent to woe a bride, each from a different village. The brides' villages are the first three villages encountered when traveling clockwise around the island.

If the sons begin their courtship today and the couples are married on the day following each son's last trip, what are the three wedding dates?

Bonus Question: If the coastline of the island is ten miles long, how long is the longest route that any of the sons takes to reach their betrothed's village?
