A mathematician told me that people often write a date in two ways

like a.b or a/b ie. 6th December is written as 6.12 or 6/12.

and then the mathematician asked me a problem

"Which unique date has the property that the product of two formats of date is equal to 1 i.e a.b X a/b = 1"

You are the ruler of a medieval empire and you are about to have a celebration tomorrow. The celebration is the most important party you have ever hosted. You've got 1000 bottles of wine you were planning to open for the celebration, but you find out that one of them is poisoned.

The poison exhibits no symptoms until death. Death occurs within ten to twenty hours after consuming even the minutest amount of poison.

You have over a thousand slaves at your disposal and just under 24 hours to determine which single bottle is poisoned.

You have a handful of prisoners about to be executed, and it would mar your celebration to have anyone else killed.

What is the smallest number of prisoners you must have to drink from the bottles to be absolutely sure to find the poisoned bottle within 24 hours?

A homicide detective is called at a crime scene. A man is lying dead in front of the building and seeking the position of the windows on the building and the position in which the body is lying, it is evident that the man jumped out from one of them and committed suicide.

The detective asks his team to collect the traces if they can find any on the body and heads towards the building. He goes to the first floor and towards the room that is on the front side. Inside the room, he lights a cigarette, walks towards the window facing the dead body, opens the window and throws out the cigarette. He then goes to the second floor and repeats the same process.

He keeps doing the same thing till he is done with all the floors and then takes the lift to the ground floor. Upon reaching there, he informs the team that it is not a suicide but a murder.

While the whole team is shocked to hear the revelation, he lights another cigarette and takes a hard puff.

How do you think he found out that it was a not a suicide?
