Animal quackers

There was once a short-sighted dinosaur called an” I -don’t –think- he- saw- us”  
   
 

Where would you find a bacteria ?

Did you know:

now for fairly brainy kids
Mathe-magix

Write down any three numbers between one and ten . For example 123

Now take those numbers and write them back wards. so 123 is written 321.

which of these two is the bigger number?

321 write this first. Underneath this write
123 
    (the smaller number) now subtract the 198                smaller number from the larger

now reverse this number 198 will be 891.

Add these two figures.891                                                                                         198

                                    1089

Try it for yourself using any three numbers. and your answer will always be 1089.

If  after making the first subtraction your answer is a two digit number, make sure you put a 0 in front of those two digits before you continue.

 

 

Mindreading

1)Think of a number. Have you got it ?

2)Add ten

3)Subtract (take away) six

4)Subtract (take away) the number you first thought of

5) Have you got your answer ?

6)Now if numbers were letters of the alphabet, then 1, 2, 3, 4 are the same as a,b,c,d  so if your answer was seven then count to the seventh letter of the alphabet, if your answer was 3 then count up till the letter c.

7) Okay ,so the number that was your final answer , what letter does that give you ?

8) Got your letter? Great . Now, think of a country starting with that letter.

9)Got it, great. What is the second letter in the country you thought of ?

10)Got it ? Good. Now think of an animal starting with that letter.

11)Got it ? Now think of the colour of that animal.

Were you thinking of..............?

Brainteaser 

Three friends go to a restaurant and the total bill comes to R30. The waiter realises he has made a mistake and overcharged them by r5, So he brings them the money.The friends realise that its not easy to divide r5 between the 3 of them, so they give the waiter a two rand tip, and each of them take one rand. So if they each received a rand change then they only spent nine rand each. Three times nine is R27 , plus the two rand tip they gave to the waiter makes R29, what happened to the other rand ?
