Maths - This week's riddles

Here are the answers from last week.

Question: Sally is 54 years old and her mother is 80. How many years ago was Sally’s mother three times her age? Answer: 41 years ago, when Sally was 13 and her mother was 39.

Question: What number do you get when you multiply all of the numbers on a telephone’s number pad? Answer: 0. All numbers multiplied by 0 result in 0.

Question: What’s the angle between the minute hand and the hour hand at a quarter past three? Answer: The minute hand is pointing directly at the ‘3’. The hour hand is ¼ of the way between the ‘3’ and ‘4’. Since there are 12 numbers on the clock, the angle between each number is 30 degrees. So the angle between the hands is 7.5 degrees. 30 divided by 4.

Maths Riddles for week beginning 6th July

  • You have 7 tennis balls that are all identical to the eye but one of them is lighter than the others. Using a balance scale and only two separate weighings, how can you find the lightest tennis ball?
