But KateEE I love your solution it was great....
Just noticed in my 'long' solution below I used 150 in the equations when I should have used 110. the answers are right for 110. Oooops!
Thanks Stevem. That's a much simpler solution :-)
Would like to thank everyone that tried to solve or solved it.... On the other puzzle you were giving percentages and I really thought it was great... although Jim was the only one that gave the correct answer then and he slept thru math classes in high school... but I love the way KateEE explained it. KateEE love you for this. The correct answer is 44 + 66 = 110 and Jim you must have soaked something up while you were sleeping. Gotta love you both...Oh and I forgot about Steven he had it also... I think this has been the most fun of them all....
Katee, not quite how I would have put it, but yes, correct. One of the numbers is 1.5 times the other, so their ratio is 2 to 3. In other words, one is 2/5th, the other is 3/5th. 1/5th of 110 is 22, so 2/5ths is 44, 3/5ths is 66.
150% of the other means 1.5 times the other, cos if it was 100% of the other then the numbers would be the same. So if one part is z (ie 1z), the other is 1.5z. And it tells us that 1z + 1.5z = 150If you add 1z and 1.5z you get 2.5zso 2.5z = 150so z = 150 dvided by 2.5 = 44therefore 1.5z = 66So the 2 numbers are 44 + 66 (which added together = 110)Tell me I'm right????
I'm so glad I am not alone! I don't have enough fingers and toes either!
I may be wrong, but I came up with 20 and 90. ( Donna)
I shall have to wait for the answer to be revealed because I don't have enough fingers and toes to solve the problem!
good one pkin
So what do I do? Not doubting anyone here - honest - but it's so easy to say 'I know the answer' :-) Of course I could be wrong!! But giving an answer spoils the fun. Ah, the dilemma's of life with technology :-) Whatever happened to 'send in your answers on a postcard'?????
Good morning, Pat. Hope last night's sleep deprivation doesn't cause you problems today. I too am not showing the answer. Fun quiz. Thanks.
Good morning Sis Just couldn't go to sleep last night but then I do that every so often... Have a great day Hugs..
Good morning dear Sissy, good to see you did sleep a bit longer. I hope it was nice. An easy one today, no words with more meanings. So it was easy to solve. I wish you a beaitful day.
Good morning Mandy ..good for you... HugsGood morning Lorna .. all right ...HugsGood morning Morris... Coffee ready... just got mine slept in this morning..
Good morning, Pat! I slept through math classes in high school. If only I would have paid attention, I could be solving math riddles, today!
Good Morning, Pat!
Well I have an answer.... Love the photo Pat.
Yay, I never thought I'd solve it, but I did!!! 1.1 hours later!! Thanks Pat, my brain's really humming now :~)
Good morning Ardy my skies where something else last night and then we were engulfed in a big black cloud and got rain.. Have a great day hugs..
