In the addition below, all digits have been replaced by letters. Equal letters represent equal digits and different letters represent different digits.
What does the complete addition look like in digits?
Jasmine, Thibault, and Noah were having a night out and decided to order a pizza for $10. It turned out that Jasmine and Thibault were hungrier than Noah. They both ate 6 slices a piece, and Noah got to eat just 2 slices.
Now they want to do a fair split of money. The problem is that none of them have coins with them. Thus, they want to round off the cost to nearest dollar.
Since Jasmine and Thibault ate equal amount, they should pay the same amount. But since that's not possible, they can decide with 'rock, paper, scissor' or an equivalent measure to determine who will pay the extra dollar. Now, let's assume tha Jasmine pays $1 extra after losing
Jasmine will pay $5, Thibault will pay $4 and Noah will pay $2.
If the pizza's cost was $11, we can simply keep the same offset and divide. Jasmine is paying 6% more, Thibault is paying 15% more and Noah is paying 27% more.
Keeping the offset same both Jasmine and Thibault will pay $5 each and Noah will pay $1.
There is a 30km long bridge. The bridge can only support up to a weight of 2000 kg. A car that weighs 2000 kg needs to cross that bridge. When the car has reached midway of the bridge, a bird comes and sits on top of the car. The bird weighs 300 grams.
Now, does the bridge breaks down at this point of time or not?
Two trains under a controlled experiment begin at a speed of 100 mph in the opposite direction in a tunnel. A supersonic bee is left in the tunnel which can fly at a speed of 1000 mph. The tunnel is 200 miles long. When the trains start running on a constant speed of 100 mph, the supersonic bee starts flying from one train towards the other. As soon as the bee reaches the second train, it starts flying back towards the first train.
If the bee keeps flying to and fro in the tunnel till the trains collide, how much distance will it have covered in total?
A typical way will be to start thinking about summing up the distance that the bee will travel but that will be quite a tedious task. How about we offer you a much easy solution?
The tunnel is 200 miles long and the trains are running at as peed of 100 mph which means that they will collide exactly at the center of the tunnel and seeking their speed, they will collide after an hour.
Now consider the bee which is flying at a speed of 1000 mph and will keep flying till the train collides. As calculated, it will keep flying for an hour which means the distance that it will cover is 1000 miles.
A clever robber breaks into a closed bank where he finds a clerk. He asks password of the safe from the clerk while pointing a gun on his forehead. Out of fear, the clerk manages to blurt out, “Every day, the password of the safe is changed. I can help you but please point away the gun as if you kill me, you will never be able to crack the password.
The robber ties the clerk on a chair and insert a cloth in his mouth. He then easily opens the safe after inserting the code and takes all the money before he flees.
You have two cubes with plane faces. You have to mark both the cubes with numbers in a manner that all the days of a month can be portrayed using those cubes. Also, note that you have to use both the cubes for displaying any date. Suppose if you have to display the 5th day of the month, you will have to display it as 05.
