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 https://vocaroo.com/i/s0cyNemtYikh
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.

i enjoyed this story. thanks jazzbazz!
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
