  1. The halfway glass

    I know what you mean but I don't think it is worded it right
  2. Bill sold his motor scooter to Tom for $100. After driving it around for a few days Tom discovered it was in such a broken-down condition that he sold it back to Bill for $80. The next day Bill sold it to Herman for $90. What is Bill's total profit?
  3. You and two of your friends would like to know the average of all of your salaries. You are each self-conscious about the amount of money you make and will not tell one another your salaries. What can you do to figure out the average salary?
  4. The halfway glass

    You are in an empty room with a glass of water. The glass is a right cylinder that looks like it is about half-full, but you are unsure. What is the most accurate way, without spilling any water, to determine whether the glass is half-full, more than half-full, or less than half-full?
  5. Bronx vs brooklyn

    A man lives in Manhattan near a subway express station. He has two girlfriends, one in Brooklyn, one in the Bronx. To visit either girl he must take a train. To go to the one in Brooklyn, he takes a train on the downtown side of the platform, and to visit the one in the Bronx, he takes a train on the uptown side of the same platform. Since he likes both girls equally well, he simply takes the first train that comes along. In this way he lets chance determine whether he rides to the Bronx or to Brooklyn. The young man reaches the subway platform at a random moment each Saturday afternoon. Brooklyn and Bronx trains arrive at the station equally often--every ten minutes. Yet for some obscure reason, he finds himself spending most of his time with the girl in Brooklyn. In fact, on average, he goes there nine times out of ten. Why are the odds so heavily in favor of Brooklyn?
