HatThree men are buried in the sand all facing forwards with their heads above ground.

Each man has a hat placed on his head selected from a bag containing 3 red hats, and 2 black hats, and the men knew the possible hat choices.

At the recent BrainBashers Festival, the 100 metres heats were closely monitored.

Each contestant had to run in two races so that the average place could be determined.

Only one runner finished in the same place in both races.

Alan was never last. Charlie always beat Darren. Brian had at least one first place. Alan finished third in at least one of the races. Both Darren and Charlie had a second place.

What were the two results?

Practical Peter was asked to cut a 99 foot rope into three smaller, equal length ropes.

However, as usual, Pete couldn't find his measuring tape so he guessed!

When he finally did find his tape (it was under his hat), he discovered that:

A) the second piece of rope was twice as long as the first piece, minus 35 feet (i.e. 2 x first, - 35).
B) the third piece of rope was half the length of the first, plus 15 feet (i.e. 0.5 x first, + 15)

How long were each of the pieces of rope?
