We have a 100 foot piece of ribbon. If it takes one second to cut it into a 1 foot strip how long would it take to cut the entire ribbon into one foot strips?

There is a row of soldiers that is 1km in length and they walk with a constant speed in a straight line, in one direction.

All the way at the end walks a messenger. He has to bring a message to the captain walking all the way at the beginning of the row.

The messenger starts walking past the soldiers and immediately turns around when arriving at the captain and walks back to the end of the row. When the messenger is back at the end, the whole group of soldiers have traveled a distance of 1 km.

The soldiers and captain are walking at the same constant speed. The messenger (walking faster then the soldiers) is also walking a a constant speed.

You don’t know anything about time or speed. How far did the messenger travel from the end of the row to the beginning and back?

When I have four I have none, when I have two I have some, when I have none I have them all. What is it?

In my neighbourhood lives a man who weighs 200 pounds. He has two sons. They both weigh 100 pounds each. On a festival day they decide to go across the river on a boat to visit some relations. But the boat could carry a maximum load of only 200 pounds.

Yet they managed to get across the river by boat. How did they?

There are 150 members in my club. We decided to have a ping pong tournament. All the members came forward to play in the game. Every time a member loses a game he is out of the tournament. There are no ties.

Can you tell how many games must be played in order to determine the champion?

A friend of mine emptied a box of matches on the table and divided them into three heaps, while we stood around him wondering what he was going to do next.

He looked up and said, “Well friends, we have here three uneven heaps. Of course you know that a match box contains altogether 48 matches. This I don’t have to tell you. And I am not going to tell you how many there are in each heap.”

“What do you want us to do?” one of the men shouted.

“Look well, and think. If I take off as many matches from the first heap as there are in the second and add them to the second, and then take as many from the second as there are in the third and add them to the third, and lastly if I take as many from the third as there are in the first and add them to the first—then the heaps will all have equal number of matches.”

As we all stood there puzzled he asked, “Can you tell me how many were there originally in each heap?” Can you?

Two schoolgirls were traveling from the city to a dacha (summer cottage) on an electric train.

“I notice,” one of the girls said, “that the dacha trains coming in the opposite direction pass us every 5 minutes. What do you think-how many dacha trains arrive in the city in an hour, given equal speeds in both directions?”

“Twelve, of course,” the other girl answered, “because 60 divided by 5 equals 12.”

The first girl did not agree. What do you think?

A collective farm was due to deliver its quota of grain to the state authorities. The management of the Kolkhoz decided the trucks should arrive in the city at exactly 11:00 A.M.

If the trucks traveled at 30 miles per hour they would reach the city at ten, an hour early; at 20 miles an hour they would arrive at noon, an hour late.

How far is the Kolkhoz from the city, and how fast should the trucks travel to arrive at 11:00 A.M.?
