#1

How many minutes is it until six o’clock if 50 minutes ago it was four times as many minutes past three o’clock?


#2

Milk and two sugars, thanks!


#3

Time you got a watch pal


#4

sounds like he might have one of those novelty watches that makes you work out the time


#5

Let
6 o’clock = 180
3 o’clock = 0

Therefore
t = 180 - x
t - 50 = 4x

180-x = 50+4x
5x = 130
x = 26

The time is 5.34, I think?


#6

Seems about right to me


#7

Glad we agree

Is this a quiz at your work?


#8

Did I work this out for nothing?


#9

of course you did


#10

26 minutes to six


#11

I’ve got a not very good work quiz story but my hand hurts so I’ll just say it rather than type https://vocaroo.com/i/s0cyNemtYikh


#12

enjoyed this

also don’t understand that riddle. just put them in the stables? if it was 10 into 9 it would be harder, there’s no problem with putting 9 things into 10 spaces


#13

Show your working.


#14

i didn’t do simultaneous equations, probably should have

just made a guess then went up and down until it worked


#15

You only get 1 mark then.


#16

:grinning: ‘I didn’t know at the time it was a pyramid scheme’


#17

i enjoyed this story. thanks jazzbazz!


#18
