Brain Game Challenge



We are often reminded to exercise our bodies but neglect exercising our brains. Studies have shown that keeping the brain active is associated with a reduced risk for Alzheimer's.

Here are some 'brain teasers' for you to try.
No cheating.
No calculators!

1. House Numbers
My twin lives at the reverse of my house number. The difference between our house numbers ends in two. What are the lowest possible numbers of our house?

2. Egg Equation
If a hen and a half lay an egg and a half in a day and a half, how many eggs will half a dozen hens lay in half a dozen days?

3. Two By Two
You know 2 + 2 comes to the same as 2 x 2. Now find a set of three different whole numbers whose sum is equal to their total when multiplied.

4. Apple Harvest
Mrs. Jones was very proud of her apple tree. One autumn, after harvesting her apples, she called her three sons together. โ€œHere are 150 apples,โ€ she said. โ€œI want you to take them to the market tomorrow and sell them for me.โ€ She gave Paul 15 apples, Nick 50, and Ben 85. โ€œYour job,โ€ added Mrs. Jones, โ€œis to sell the apples in such a way that each of you brings home the same amount of money.โ€ How do they do it?

5. Inheritance
Granny Adams left half her money to her granddaughter and half that amount to her grandson. She left a sixth to her brother, and the remainder, $1,000, to the dogsโ€™ home. How much did she leave altogether?

6. Rain Man
A man was walking in the rain. He was in the middle of nowhere. He had nothing and nowhere to hide. He came home all wet, but not a single hair on his head was wet. How is that possible?

7. Classroom Math
14 of the in the class are girls. 8 of the wear blue shirts. 2 of the are neither girls or wear a blue shirt. If 5 of the are girls who wear blue shirts how many are in the class?

8. The Man and His Car
A man pushes his car to a hotel and tells its owner that he is bankrupt. Why?

9. The Photograph
A man is looking at a photograph of someone. His friend asks who it is. The man replies, โ€œBrothers and sisters, I have none. But that manโ€™s father is my fatherโ€™s .โ€ Who was in the photograph?

How do you think you did?

1. The lowest possible numbers for our house are 19 and 91.

2. Two dozen. If you increase both the number of hens and the amount of time available four-fold, the number of eggs increases 16 times. 16 x 1.5 = 24.

3. The three different whole numbers whose sum is equal to their total when multiplied are 1, 2 and 3.

4. The first buyer purchases 12 dozen apples at $1 per dozen. Paul sells him one dozen and has three apples left; Nick sells him four-dozen and has two apples left; and Ben sells him seven-dozen and has one apple left. Then a second buyer comes along and buys all their remaining apples for $3 apiece. The three brothers head home with $10 each.

5. She left $12,000. One half plus one quarter plus one-sixth equals eleven-twelfths. So, the remainder, $1,000, is one-twelfth of the whole, which must have been $12,000.

6. The man was bald.

7. 19

8. He is playing Monopoly

9. His son

You know hun my brain is a little on overload today as I have been gone most of the day. I probably would get none of these right, as mathematics has never been my strong suit so to speak. I have been dealing with numbers all day today, and now I am going to get me a nice long shower and relax..

Thanks for sharing these and I hope your enjoying a wonderful evening..

Seduce the mind and see what a wonderful adventure the body will take you on..

6. Rain Man - bald
8. The Man and His Car - because he has no money

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

Gotta hate the time delay that occurs on here. However, it should have given you more time to consider your answers? Repairs? How did that work out ๐Ÿค”?

Mathematics and logic questions can be challenging. Often, we convince ourselves they are harder than they actually are. Hope you found time to relax and had a good evening ๐Ÿ˜Š

If 2+2=4. 2x2=4. 1+1=2, 1x1=1 ? Don't think 1 is one of them either.

Ok then as long as it doesn't hurt too much I'll give you permission to streach my brain on occasion

1+2+3=6
1x2x3=6
looks like elementary 3rd grad math..
The key words are" three different whole numbers." The numbers 1, 2 and 3 do fit the bill.

Well what do you know, spell check is working here tonight.. I sure have missed it!!!!

Isn't a little pain, worth the gain sometimes? No worries, I would have done it regardless of whether you granted "permission". My challenge will be to search out some questions that haven't been seen before!
