    Puzzle to Puzzle You 02

  • 6. A jar has 4 amoebas in it to start. Amoebas split their cells in two ( therefore doubling in size) once every minute. The jar will be completely filled in 10 minutes. How long would it take to fill the same sized jar if had 8 amoebas in it to start?

    7. There are 100 golfers in the local match play contest. If a player loses a match, he is immediately eliminated from the contest. How many matches will be played to determine the winner?

    8. Two trains are on a head on collision course. The trains are currently 65 miles apart. The north bound train is traveling at 55 miles per hour and the south bound train is traveling at 80 miles per hour. What is the distance between the trains two minutes before they collide?

    9. A car travels at a speed of 30 mph over a certain distance, and then returns over the same distance at a speed of 20 mph. What is the average speed for the total trip?

    10. A woman has 100 yards of cloth on a single roll, and she wants to divide it into 100 lengths of 1 yard each. It takes her 3 seconds to cut each length. Working non-stop, how long will it take her to cut all 100 pieces?
    6. 9 minutes

    7. If there is to be only one winner, than there are 99 loses, therefore there were 99 matches. You can also do this with math: in round 1 there would be 50 matches to produce 50 winners, round 2 would have 25 matches to produce 25 winners, round 3 would have 12 matches to produce 12 winners ( one person of the 25 winners would have to wait until later to play again ), round 4 would have 6 matches to produce 6 winners, round 5 would have 3 matches to produce 3 winners, round 6 would have 2 matches ( the player left out before would now play to make it an even field ) to produce 2 winners, these 2 would play for the championship. So: 50+25+12+6+3+2+1=99

    The first round is 50 matches eliminating 50 golfers, the second is 25 matches eliminating 25 golfers. For the third round the remaining 25 are divided into pools of 5 at random and face two matches each (each vs. a different randomly selected opponent in the pool). I think you will find that there will be two golfers and two only from each pool who will be dual winners. They will advance. The third round was then 5 pools of 5 matches so 25 more matches (100 total so far). The fourth round will be 5 matches eliminating 5 golfers. These five participate in a pool (fifth round) just like the third round (5 more matches and 2 emerge). The two play the championship match. So by round the matches are: 50+25+25+5+5+1 = 111 matches

    8. If the trains are moving toward each other we combine their speeds to give us their speed basis. So: 55+80=135mph. Divide this speed by 60 minutes to give the speed they are traveling each minute=2.25 miles/minute. Therefore: 2 minutes before impact they are 4.5 miles apart.

    9. 24 mph. Most people are quick to answer 25 mph, but this is not correct, as we will see. Let the distance traveled be 60 miles each way. Then, the trip out = 60/30 = 2 hours, and the trip back = 60/20 = 3 hours.
    Therefore: the 120 mile trip = 120/5 = 24 mph.

    10. The answer is 297 seconds, not 300 as most people would suppose. This is because the 100 pieces are made in 99 cuts. The last cut made results in 2 pieces instead of only one piece.

    Dirty Tricks Seldom Work

  • A Fox was once caught in a trap. It was only after a tough struggle that she could get free. But, to her sorrow, her beautiful tail had been cut off and left in the trap.

    "How ugly I shall look!" moaned the fox, "won't the other foxes laugh at me ?"

    Thinking hard, the fox hit upon a plan to save herself from being laughed at. She called a meeting of his friends and said, "Brothers! have you ever wondered why after all, we carry these long tails?" Let us cut them off and be free from their nuisance."

    But the other foxes had noticed her cut-off tail. They laughed aloud and replied, "You used to say that tails looked very fine when your own was all right. Now that you have lost yours, you want us to lose ours too."

    Temper Control

  • Once upon a time there was a little boy who was talented, creative, handsome, and extremely bright. A natural leader. The kind of person everyone would normally have wanted on their team or project. But he was also self-centered and had a very bad temper. When he got angry, he usually said, and often did, some very hurtful things. In fact, he seemed to have little regard for those around him. Even friends. So, naturally, he had few. “But,” he told himself, “that just shows how stupid most people are!”

    As he grew, his parents became concerned about this personality flaw, and pondered long and hard about what they should do. Finally, the father had an idea. And he struck a bargain with his son. He gave him a bag of nails, and a BIG hammer. “Whenever you lose your temper,” he told the boy, “I want you to really let it out. Just take a nail and drive it into the oak boards of that old fence out back. Hit that nail as hard as you can!”

    Of course, those weathered oak boards in that old fence were almost as tough as iron, and the hammer was mighty heavy, so it wasn’t nearly as easy as it first sounded. Nevertheless, by the end of the first day, the boy had driven 40 nails into the fence (That was one angry young man!). Gradually, over a period of weeks, the number dwindled down. Holding his temper proved to be easier than driving nails into the fence! Finally the day came when the boy didn’t lose his temper at all. He felt mighty proud as he told his parents about that accomplishment.

    “As a sign of your success,” his father responded, “You get to Pull Out One nail. In fact, you can do that each day that you don’t lose your temper even once.”

    Well, many weeks passed. Finally one day, the young boy was able to report proudly that all the nails were gone.

    At that point, the father asked his son to walk out back with him and take one more good look at the fence. “You have done well, my son,” he said. 

    “But I want you to notice the holes that are left. No matter what happens from now on, this fence will never be the same. Saying or doing hurtful things in anger produces the same kind of result. There will always be a scar. It won’t matter how many times you say you’re sorry, or how many years pass, the scar will still be there. And a verbal wound is as bad as a physical one. People are much more valuable than an old fence. They make us smile. They help us succeed. Some will even become friends who share our joys, and support us through bad times. And, if they trust us, they will also open their hearts to us. 

    That means we need to treat everyone with love and respect. We need to prevent as many of those scars as we can.”
