Mental Floss 150

The answer to last week’s challenge is, Q: Someone is being chased through the jungle by cannibals. They have in their possession two solid gold bars which weigh 4kg each. They come to a rope bridge to escape upon but the bridge will only support 95kg in total. The escapee weighed 90kg. There was no time to carry the bars across one at a time and it was too far to throw them. They had no other items with them that could be discarded. Time was running out. How did they escape and still keep the gold bars?

A: They walked carefully across the bridge whilst juggling the gold bars.

This week’s challenge is:

Q: If four boys can pick four apples in four minutes, how many boys would be able to pick 100 apples in 100 minutes?

The answer along with a new challenge, next week.

Have a great weekend!
