 This thread is where you can post answers, discuss theories, etc..Just some brain teasers I made up. There is a logical answer for each. No scratch paper for the math. Good luck!! 1) What number is the square root of one quater of twenty five percent of one half of 8 cubed?  Spoiler:

The answer is 4. Take 8 Cubed (8x8x8 = 512) divide by 2 (256) then take 25% (64) then 1/4 (16). The square root of 16 is 4.
2) Which of these doesnt belong, and why Elephant Rooster Llama Baseball Cashier  Spoiler:

Llama is correct. Only word with 2 vowels
3) I like 584 but not 585. I like 755 but not 763. Which number will I like, and why 980 978 649 199  Spoiler:

980 is the answer. The digits in the numbers add to 17
4) Fill in the next two numbers in this sequence 6 3 9 6 18 15 45 42 ? ? .  Spoiler:

126 and 123. You multiply by 3 in one, then deduct three from the next.
5) If you count from 1 to 99 , how many 9's will you see in total? .  Spoiler:

20 . 9,19,29,39,49,59,69,79,89,90,91,92,93,94,95,96,97,98,99 (two nines in 99)
6) Identify a pattern so the correct words finishes this statement. "A Bat can defy existing fixed gravity ___________________" . Explain your choice A) by using the wind. B) , hence its joy. C) and float forever. D) , and soar for hours.  Spoiler:

Answer is B. Words are in alphabetical order 7) It takes 3 eggs to make 2 Sandwiches. If you need to make nine times as many sandwiches as half of a third of two dozen, how many eggs so you need?  Spoiler:

Answer is 54. 24 divided by 3 ( by half (4) times 9 = 36. 36 Sandwiches are 18 sets of 2. Each set of 2 needs three eggs. So 18 times 3 (54)
8.) Winston is 3 times as old as Ben. In 25yrs he will be twice Ben's age. 15yrs ago he was 6 times Ben's age. How old are Ben and Winston today?  Spoiler:

Ben is 25. Winston is 75. In 25yrs Winston will be 100 and Ben 50 (double). 15yrs ago they were 60 and 10 (6X the age)
9) If you walk 4 miles forward , then 3 miles right, whats the shortest distance you can walk to arrive back at your original spot?  Spoiler:

5 Miles. Anwser is based on a triangle. A squared plus B squared equals C squared. 3 squared (9) plus 4 squared (4) equals 25. The square root of 25 is 5
10) Look at the equations below. What goes in place of ?? and why? 12 > 18 < 93 42 > 54 < 87 33 > 61 < 49 24 > ?? < 98 A) 43 B) 47 C) 22 D) 54  Spoiler:

Answer is B (47) . The middle number is derived by taking the number on the right, subtracting the left, and then juxtpositioning the result. 98  24 = 74. Flip it and you get 47
So How'd YOU do _________________________________________________ SHEESH!!!!i am not raping anyones childhood!!!!  Darren P.S.
