Hint: Start by looking at the consonants and vowels.
Answer: 65 tonnes.
Vowels are worth 3 and consonants are worth 5, added together and then multiplied by the number of ingots.
So TIN has 1 vowel (worth 3) and 2 consonants (worth 10).
Added gives 13, then multiplied by 5 ingots = 65.
Puzzle 771
If one small rabbit can dig a warren in nine hours, a medium rabbit can dig a warren in 6 hours and a large rabbit can dig a warren in four and a half hours.
How long will it take one small, one medium and one large rabbit to dig a warren if they all work together?
Hint: How much of a warren each rabbit dig in one hour.
Answer: 2 hours.
The small rabbit can dig a warren in nine hours so digs 1/9 in one hour.
The medium rabbit can dig a warren in 6 hours so digs 1/6 in one hour.
The large rabbit can dig a warren in four and a half hours so digs 1/4.5 in one hour.
1/9 + 1/6 + 1/4.5 = 0.5. So in one hour, they have dug half a warren between them, the whole warren will therefore take 2 hours.
