Michael made a cake, in the shape of a perfect cube, for 64 guests at a recent party. The inside of the cake was sponge, and he iced the cake with red icing. He of course did not ice the bottom of the cake.
Michael cut each side of the cake into four equal pieces, making a total of 64 pieces of cake. Each exactly the same size.
How many of the pieces of cake had at least 2 of their sides with icing?
Hint: How many pieces on the top layer have at least 2 sides with icing?
There were 12 pieces on the top layer with at least 2 sides with icing. The other three layers each have 4 pieces that have 2 sides with icing. A total of 24.
Place letters into the grid such that every row, column, and 2x2 block has letters (in any order) that form a common word.
Each letter is only used once, and no letter is repeated in the rows/cols/blocks.
Using the BrainTracker grid below, how many words can you find? Each word must contain the central K and no letter can be used twice, however, the letters do not have to be connected. Proper nouns are not allowed, however, plurals are. Can you find the nine letter word?
