Solutions to Math Puzzles and Lateral Thinking Exercises

Here are the solutions to last week's Math puzzles in our debut Mind Games.


The Dovetail Block

These are the two pieces that were joined together:


And here is the resulting block:


The Animal Market

James must have taken 7 animals to market, Hodgen must have taken 11, and David must have taken 21. There were thus 39 animals altogether.


The End of the World

The first day of a century can never fall on a Sunday; nor on a Wednesday or a Friday.


NOTE:
Sadly, of all those who sent in their solutions, nobody got all right. The best attempt was two correct answers. Take another look at these questions whose answers are now provided above, you'll see just how easy it is.
We hope to reward someone in the next Mind Games later in October, so keep it CCM.
