Thought for the Day 1 August 2017

Today I thought that you should do some thinking so I found some puzzles.

Puzzle 1:

I’ve got two jugs: A) 11 liter, B) 6 liter. How can I measure out exactly 9 liters?

Puzzle 2:

On a dark night Bert and Betty were sitting together. Bert was watching a soccer match on TV while his wife Betty was reading a novel. Suddenly the power went out and Bert decided to go to bed, but strangely Betty kept on reading. There was no artificial light around, but Betty kept on reading. How come?

Puzzle 3:

Two friends, Torres and Lampard, meet after a long time. Torres: Hey, how are you man? Lampard: Not bad, got married and I have three kids now. Torres: That’s awesome. How old are they? Lampard: The product of their ages is 72 and the sum of their ages is the same as the day of your birth date. Torres: Cool. But I still don’t know. Lampard: My eldest kid just started taking piano lessons. Torres: Oh now I get it.

How old are Lampard’s kids?

Enjoy some mental exercise! (Answers and explanations tomorrow.)

Cheers, Dave
