Puzzle IconFarmer Stone is quite an eccentric dairy farmer.

He originally had a total 54 gallons of milk in three churns and he wanted to make sure each churn contained 18 gallons of milk.

In order to do this, he did the following:

First he poured 1/4 of the first churn in the second churn.
He then poured 1/2 of the second churn into the third churn.
Finally he poured 1/3 of the third churn into the first churn.

How many gallons did each churn contain before Farmer Stone started pouring?

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.
