Thursday Q&A



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


Milk and two sugars, thanks!


Time you got a watch pal


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


6 o’clock = 180
3 o’clock = 0

t = 180 - x
t - 50 = 4x

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

The time is 5.34, I think?


Seems about right to me


Glad we agree

Is this a quiz at your work?


Did I work this out for nothing?


of course you did


26 minutes to six


I’ve got a not very good work quiz story but my hand hurts so I’ll just say it rather than type


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


Show your working.


i didn’t do simultaneous equations, probably should have

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


You only get 1 mark then.


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


i enjoyed this story. thanks jazzbazz!


*1 marck


Noooo it’s the other way round! I’m awful at telling stories oops. Ten horses in nine stables and it’s t e n h o r s e s :sweat_smile:


lol ffs
