**Answers:****1.**10x10=100÷1/2=200+12=212.

**2.**9(NINE)= [1-Father, 1-Mother, 6-Sons and 1-Sister].

**3.**If Mollie has twice as many Beanie Babies as Jenn and Allison has 3 times as many as Jenn, then the total of 72 must be divided by 6.{72÷6=12}. Therefore, Jenn has 12 Beanie Babies, Mollie has 24 Beanie Babies, and Allison has 36 Beanie Babies.

**4.**If Kevin is 6'6" tall, George must be 5'4" tall, and Richard must be 6' tall because he is 6" shorter than Kevin and 8" tall than George.

**5.**The first player only shakes hands with 8 other players, the second player only shakes hands with 7 other players ( he already shook hands with the first player!), the third player only shakes hands with 6 players ( he already shook hands with the first player and second player ), and so on, until the last player who only has one possibility left. Therefore: 8+7+6+5+4+3+2+1=36.
