K, PUT YOUR ANSWERS IN WHITE TEXT OR A SPOILER TAG FROM NOW ON XD

This is rich- my whole family got thrown for a loop.


Try to figure out an answer before looking it up/try to resist getting the answer immediately
If you’ve seen these before ,SHUSH.

I’ve got THREE Questions,

#1.A bat and a ball cost $1.10 in total. The bat costs $1 more than the ball. How much does the ball cost?


#2.
In a lake, there is a patch of lily pads. Every day the patch doubles in size. If it takes 48 days for the patch to cover the entire lake, how long would it take for the patch to cover half of it?



#3. If it takes 5 machines 5 minutes to make 5 widgets, how long would it take 100 machines to make 100 widgets?

5 cents :I. it’s a bit of a loopy question to be fair.

one might initially think it costs 10 cents but if the bat is $1 more than the ball, and the total is 1.10, then that would make the it 1.10+ .10.

if the ball is 0.05 and the bat is 1 dollar more, that is 1.05+.05=1.10.

47 days. if the patch doubles in size every day, then the day before it becomes full must be when it is half full.

still 5 minutes. just because the machines increase in numbers doesn’t mean the time does. also I forgot how to white text. you can do it for me if you like lol.
/Whitetext
these questions are challenging if you are too used to blind multiplication and just numbers in general. these are more logic questions that number questions.

Fuck!

I had the trick to it worked out, but I just didn’t put the two and two together in regards to number of days.

I love these things, you should post them more often. Or, maybe there should be a thread for them.

Any way, I got the third one too, but not telling.

I wish there was a way to not spoil it for everyone else. lol
