A man had to pack a sack of apples into packets but as each packet had to have exactly the same number of apples he was having difficulty.

If he packed 10 apples per packet, one packet only had 9.

If he packed 9 apples per packet, one packet only had 8.

If he packed 8 apples per packet, one packet only had 7.

If he packed 7 apples per packet, one packet only had 6.

And so on down to 2 apples.

How many apples did he start with?

Using the BrainBashers E-commerce solution, James ordered a fishing rod, priced at $3.56.

Unfortunately, James is an fisherman who lives in a very remote part of Greenland and the import rules there forbid any package longer than 4 feet to be imported.

The fishing rod was 4 feet and 1 inch, just a little too long, so how can the fishing rod be mailed to James without breaking the rules? Ideally James would like the fishing rod to arrive in one piece!

In farmer Brown's hay loft there are a number of animals, in particular crows, mice and cockroaches.

Being bored one day, I decided to count the animals and found there were exactly 150 feet and 50 heads in total, and there were twice as many cockroaches as mice.

How many of each animal were there?
