 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?
2) Which of these doesnt belong, and why
Elephant Rooster Llama Baseball Cashier
3) I like 584 but not 585. I like 755 but not 763. Which number will I like, and why
980 978 649 199
4) Fill in the next two numbers in this sequence 6 3 9 6 18 15 45 42 ? ?
5) If you count from 1 to 99 , how many 9's will you see in total?
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.
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?
.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?
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?
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

1A.64? As long as cubed is 8.
2) Which of these doesnt belong, and why

2A.llama no e?
3) I like 584 but not 585. I like 755 but not 763. Which number will I like, and why

3A.980 adds up to 17
4) Fill in the next two numbers in this sequence 6 3 9 6 18 15 45 42 ? ?
4A. 126
5) If you count from 1 to 99 , how many 9's will you see in total?
5A.19 had ti use my fingers
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.
6A. This is a tough one and a guess on my behalf. Here goes defying fixed gravity in my mind means his torso e.g. if his wings were flapping fast enough and if his torso is light enough then it woukd become weightless thus defying gravity, now if this is right then the logical answer with the flapping would be A. Yes my answer is A
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?
7A. A dozen eggs in England is 12 ( I dont know if its different in America?), if I use that if ok then my answer is 27?
.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?
8A. Ben is 25 and Winston is 75.
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?
9A. I need a ruler for this one, I know its the distance between the two points of the angle, its gonna be 6 or 7? I will go with 6
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
10A. Got me on this one, I think its A. I cant explain why because I cant quite work tjis one out but I think its something to do with 7?
There you go, I know ive got some wrong but no calculator, pencil just me and about 40 minutes. Didn't expect this on this site? But thanks got the brain working

 1) What number is the square root of one quater of twenty five percent of one half of 8 cubed? Wtf? I broke a calculator trying to figure this out.2) Which of these doesnt belong, and why Elephant Rooster Llama Baseball Cashier Baseball, not a living thing.3) I like 584 but not 585. I like 755 but not 763. Which number will I like, and why 980 978 649 199 Learn to like all numbers and they are all good. 4) Fill in the next two numbers in this sequence 6 3 9 6 18 15 45 42 ? ? Ummmmm.........1 and 25) If you count from 1 to 99 , how many 9's will you see in total? I don't see numbers when I count. If you do you may want to go see a doctor.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. C. Because in school they always said if you don't know, choose c.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? My head hurts. Go get some sliced turkey or ham and throw the eggs at the neighbors house..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? Old enough to drink (which I need now thanks to these questions)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? Given that you walked a right angle I assume there is stuff blocking the way so you need to walk a right angle back. So same distance.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 C. See the above reasoning on multiple choice.I win. _________________________________________________ Bryan

 Wait a minute, that's not what I wrote. I have a feeling someone has changed my words, along with his daily attire. _________________________________________________ Bryan

 This was a bit of inside ribbing with John. For those who don't know he and his daughter attended a comic con and this is them. He also had a really neat statue made of the two of them. Not sure where the original thread is as I had this picture in a thread in the mod section (I poke fun at his leia roleplay quite a bit). _________________________________________________ Bryan

Oh Yes, that is the Darthberizing in all his glory. I don't know if it was his daughter that wanted to do the dressup like this, but likely it was. John has two children a boy (Frankie) and a girl (name escapes me at the moment) and he is always doing cool little stuff with them. Frankie is also a great help when we have drawings or raffles most of the time. He makes some video appearances around here. We all share a bit of family around here. I have piocs of my kid on here also in some thread somewhere (think it was a thread for a drawing we did to help Larry and his family ) _________________________________________________ Bryan
