My Son is Naughty Jack and Ray were at the rugby. Ray’s team was winning so Jack decided to give Ray a problem to deflate his ego a bit. So Jack said “Did you know that today is my three sons’ birthday?” “How old are they?” Ray asked taking the bite. “I’ll give you a hint. The product of their ages is 36 and the sum of their ages is 13,” Jack replied. “That’s no help,” said Ray. So Jack weakened and gave him another clue. “O.K. My youngest son is very naughty.” “Nothing to it,” exclaimed Ray and he told Jack the correct ages of his sons. How did Ray figure out the correct answer and what are Jack’s sons’ ages?

The Rock Pool Some octopuses, some fish and a few mermaids were happily frolicking in a rock pool. Altogether there were 38 arms, 24 eyes and 8 tails all swimming in the pool. How many mermaids were there?

Restaurant Question

My Project 23 from Team 5 PES on Vimeo.

The Pizza Place in my town has three tables of the same size. The Chicken N Chips restaurant has four of the same sort of table.
The Chicken N Chips can just seat 24 people. How many people can The Pizza Place seat?
Now a third of the seats at The Chicken N Chips were empty and a half of the places at The Pizza Place were empty. If 18 more people wanted to eat out, how many would have to be turned away from the two restaurants?
