I havn’t done a puzzle/Riddle post in a while so here’s 3 to test your brain:
1 – Two fathers and two sons sit down at breakfast to eat eggs. They ate exactly three eggs, each person had an egg. How is this possible?
2 – Three brothers help run the family farm. They agree to buy new seeds: two brothers would go into town whilst the third stayed to look after the animals. Brother 1 bought 75 sacks of wheat in the market whereas brother 2 bought 45 sacks. At home, they split the sacks equally. Brother 3 had paid 1400 pounds for the wheat. How much money did brothers 1 and 2 get from this sum, considering equal split of the sacks?
3 – Barry went to the local pub for a meal and met his old friend Sara and her daughter Beatrice. Barry asked Sara how old Beatrice was? to which Beatrice replies “In two years I will be twice as old as I was three years ago”. How old is Beatrice?
Scroll down below the puppies for answers
1 – One of the fathers is a grandfather, there are only 3 people present, a grandfather, father and son.
2 – to figure this out first figure out how many sacks everyone got. 75+45 = 120. Each brother gets 40 sacks once divided which cost £1400, each sack is therefore worth (40/1400 = £35). Brother 1 gave up (75-40=35) sacks so gets paid (35*35= £1225) whilst brother 2 only has to give up (45-40=5) sacks so gets (5*35=£175).
3 – Beatrice is a very annoying 8 year old. in 2 years time she will be 10, which is double the age she was 3 years ago (5).
