Puzzle IconI was having trouble sleeping last night and I tossed and turned well into the night.

Our local town hall has a clock which strikes on the hour and also strikes just once on the half hour.

During one of my more awake moments I heard the clock strike once, but I could not tell what time it was.

Half an hour later it struck once again, but I still could not tell what time it was.

Finally, half an hour later it struck once again and I knew what the time was.

What time was it?

Puzzle IconThree countrymen met at a cattle market. "Look here," said Hodge to Jakes, "I'll give you six of my pigs for one of your horses, and then you'll have twice as many animals here as I've got."

"If that's your way of doing business," said Durrant to Hodge, "I'll give you fourteen of my sheep for a horse, and then you'll have three times as many animals as I."

"Well, I'll go better than that," said Jakes to Durrant; "I'll give you four cows for a horse, and then you'll have six times as many animals as I've got here."

No doubt this was a very primitive way of bartering animals, but it is an interesting little puzzle to discover just how many animals Jakes, Hodge, and Durrant must have taken to the cattle market.
