Puzzle IconLast week I decided to cycle to my Grandmother's house.

On the first day, I cycled half of the distance.

On day 2, I cycled one half of the remaining distance.

On day 3, I cycled three quarters of the remaining distance.

On day 4, I cycled 10 miles.

On day 5 I cycled two thirds of the remaining distance and on the final day I cycled the remaining 5 miles.

How far is it to my Grandmothers house?

Puzzle IconAfter a day picking strawberries I had a basket full.

I ate 5 and gave Alex half of the remaining.

I then ate another 3 and gave Blake one third of the remaining.

I ate another 6 and then gave Charlie two thirds of the remaining.

I now had 34 strawberries left. How many did I start with?

Puzzle IconYou have a very large number of generic plastic building blocks, each in the shape of a cube.

Think about how many cubes you would need in order to construct a giant cube with 16 small cubes along each edge?

If you were to then remove the outside layer, how many small cubes would you have removed?
