One day while on his rounds he sold 1/2 an orange more than half his orange to the first customer. To the second customer he sold 1/2 an orange more than half of the remainder and to the third and last customer he sold 1/2 an orange more than half she now had, leaving her none.
Can you tell the number of oranges he originally had?

A boy remarked that if the symbol to the left of the equal sign were inverted and one of the three symbols to the right were erased, the equation would still be true and it contains no redundant or unnecessary symbols. What is the equation?
(The line in a fraction counts as a symbol)

Utkrisht123 added a question in New Logic/Math PuzzlesThe Conscientious DriverMr. D always followed the advice to conserve energy as he was a conscientious driver. While driving his family Ford one day, he came to a stop sign and noticed that the odometer showed 25952 miles. Observant as he was he recognised that the number was a palindrome. He thought that it will be a long time before a palindromic number happens again. Yet two hours later when he arrived home the odometer showed a new palindrome number.
What was the new palindrome number, and how fast was he travelling in those two hours?

Utkrisht123 added a question in New Logic/Math Puzzlesa^2 -b^2 = (a+b)(a-b)All of you know that a2 - b2 = (a+b)(a-b)
I know only two method to prove it.
a2 - b2 a2 - b2
a2 - b2 + ab - ab a2 - b2 + 2ab -2ab -2b2
a2 + ab - ab - b2 (a+b)2 - 2b(a+b)
a(a+b) - b(a+b) (a+b)(a+b) - 2b(a+b)
Apart form these two method are there any other method to prove it.
