Mental Floss 328

The answer to last week’s challenge is: Q: There are flowers with bees hovering over them. How many flowers and bees are there if both these statements are true? 1) If each bee lands on a flower, one bee doesn’t get a flower. 2) If two bees share each flower there is one flower left out?

A: 4 bees & 3 flowers.

This week’s thinking challenge is …

Q: There is a chain nailed to a wall. The chain is 3 metres long and the middle of the chain dips down 1.5 metres from where each side of the chain is nailed to the wall. How far are the 2 ends of the chain from each other?

The answer along with a new challenge, next week.

Have an excellent weekend!
