1. OK....tried to use the spoiler and it didn't work. Sorry folks....I know the answer, too, so if you don't want to read it, scroll quickly past the Asteriks***** ****************************** ********************** *********** ******* **** ** * If she's "about to be" 61, that means she's still 60. Obviously that's how come you can say she's "double" your age. You aren't speaking litterally, of course - You're just saying that 60 is double 30, so that's the "double" you're talking about. If you recently turned 30, and she's just about to turn 61, that m
2. OK - forget what I said. I was thinking of something different. I was thinking 1 + 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/8 + 1/16 + 1/32......in which case the amount would approach \$2.00, not \$3.00. For this problem, it needs to be 1 + 1/2 + 1/3 + 1/4 + 1/5 + 1/6 + 1/7 + 1/8..... right? I'm not quite sure how to solve this one, but I'm sure it'll be easy for someone.
3. I don't believe the second one is right. (I have no idea about the first.)
4. I believe this has been posted before. A hint about "Hints" - Hints are not meant to give the entire answer. This was a fairly easy one to figure out. Let folks figure it out. Then if they can't figure out the answer, post a "Hint", or post the actual answer. I won't bother leaving the simple answer since you already left it.
5. I THOUGHT I was right until I read the first person to answer. If I were a betting man, I'd probably figure I was most likely to be wrong. At any rate, there MUST be an easier way to do this problem than the way my wee brain drew it up. Can someone enlighten me as to where (if at all) I went wrong, and what the easier way to think of this problem is? Thanks all! I enjoy this forum even though it's just a bit over my head.
6. Of course! Good job!
7. Thank you VERY much! This explanation was a very clear way to illustrate the concept. I appreciate the extra time you gave here! Thanks again!
8. I am not great with these puzzles, but your post got me thinking of something:
