Mental Floss 16





The answer to last week’s Mental Floss is. Q: How can you build pig pens so that you can put nine pigs in four pens so that each pen has an odd number of pigs?

A: Put three pigs in each of three pens (or 1, 3, 5), then surround those three pens with one larger pen.

This week’s Mental Floss challenge is.

Q: You are inside a perfectly cubical room where each wall, the ceiling and the floor are mirrors. There is nothing else in the room. How many reflections can you see if you’re facing in one direction and can look up, down left and right?

The answer to this challenge and a new Mental Floss will appear next week.
