## How Old Will I be 3 Years From Now?

Aug 17### Answer

Let x be my present age. My age 3 years from now will be x + 3, and 3 times that will be 3 (x + 3). Similarly, my age 4 years from now will be x + 4, and 4 times that will be 4 (x + 4).

Adding the two gives 8 times my current age. This gives the equation:

3 (x + 3) + 4 (x + 4) = 8 x.

Solving the above equation gives

x = (3 × 3) + (4 × 4) = 25.

therefore in 3 years I will be 28.

## Where has the other $1.00 gone from the Original $15?

Jun 01### Answer

Although the initial bill was $15 dollars, one of the five dollar notes gets changed into five ones. The total the three men ultimately paid is $12, as they get three ones back. So from the $12 the men paid, the owner receives $10 and the waiter receives the $2 difference. $15 – $3 = $10 + $2.

Mar 01### hint

### Answer

If the Beer is in the

- 15 Gallons Barrel – there are 104 gallons of Wine left
- 16 Gallons Barrel – there are 103 gallons of Wine left
- 18 Gallons Barrel – there are 101 gallons of Wine left
- 19 Gallons Barrel – there are 100 gallons of Wine left
- 20 Gallons Barrel – there are 99 gallons of Wine left
- 31 Gallons Barrel – there are 88 gallons of Wine left

The only equation that works is 99 gallons of wine left because it can be divided by 3 evenly. (3X) = 99. X = 33 Shopper 1 went home with 33 Gallons of Wine (15 gallon and 18 gallon) Shopper 2 Went home with 66 Gallons (16 gallon, 19 gallon, and 31 gallon) and the merchant kept the 20 Gallon beer for himself.
