3 3 3 3 3 = (equals) 5

Here’s another brain teaser (or more of a math question) for you that I got from Faraz!

Put in the operations to make this correct: 3 3 3 3 3 = 5. Give at least two solutions.

Another Brain Teaser

I’ve got another brain teaser for you!

There are six glasses. The first three of the glasses are filled with orange juice; the other three are empty. By moving only one glass, can you arrange them so the full and empty glasses alternate?

I’ve included an image for those of you who need a visual image!

Remember, don’t cheat!

Another Fun Logic Question

Here’s another fun logic problem, although different in content. I’ve seen a different format of this question before (with different animals and such), but this specific one was assigned to me in one of my classes for fun. Anyways, here goes:

There are three hobbits and three orcs on one side of a river. They have a boat that can carry two creatures at a time. All have to get across, but if the orcs outnumber the hobbits at any time, the orcs will eat the hobbits. How can all six creatures get across the river? How many trips across the river must be made?

Leave your answers as comments. I’d love to see what you come up with.

Find the Man in the Coffee Beans

Something I got from my brother…I found it pretty quickly. I love these types of activities.


THE TRICK IS TO FIND THE MAN IN THE COFFEE BEANS:

This is bizarre – after you find the guy – it’s so obvious. Once you find him – it’s embarrassing, and you think, why didn’t I see him immediately?

Doctors have concluded that if you find the man in the coffee beans in 3 seconds, the right half of your brain is better developed than most people.

If you find the man between 3 seconds and 1 minute, the right half of the brain is developed normally.

If you find the man between 1 minute and 3 minutes, then the right half of your brain is functioning slowly.

If you have not found the man after 3 minutes, the advice is to look for more of this type of exercise to make that part of the brain stronger!!!

And, yes, the man is really there!!!
