### April 2018

Answer: 75km

First Village = A

Second Village = B

Third Village = C

Fourth Village = D

Distance between B and D = 40km

=> Distance between B and C + Distance between C and D = 40km

=> Distance between B and C + (Distance between B and C - 10) = 40 km

=> 2 * Distance between B and C = 50km

=> Distance between B and C = 25km

Therefore distance between C and D = 15km

Thus, distance between A and D = 60 + 15 = 75km

### June Teaser:

A man has to get a fox, a chicken and a sack of corn across a river. He has a row boat and it can only carry him and one other thing.

If the fox and the chicken are left together, the fox will eat the chicken.

If the chicken and corn are left together, the chicken will eat the corn.

How does the man do it?

### Answer:

The man and the chicken cross the river, (the fox and corn are safe together), he leaves the chicken on the other side and goes back across.

The man then takes the fox across the river and since he can't leave the fox and chicken together, he brings the chicken back.

Again, since the chicken and corn can't be left together, he leaves the chicken and he takes the corn across and leaves it with the fox.

He then returns to pick up the chicken and heads across the river one last time.

### April teaser:

You’re standing in a hallway with three light switches on the wall, each of which turns on a different lamp inside a closed room. You can’t see inside the room, and you can’t open the door except to enter the room. You can enter the room only once, and when you do, all the lamps must be turned off. How can you tell which switch turns on which lamp?

**Answer:**

*Turn on the right switch and leave it on for two minutes. After two minutes, turn on the middle switch and leave it on for one minute. When that minute is up, turn off both switches and enter the room. One light bulb will be hot (1st switch) and one will be warm (2nd switch). The cold bulb will correspond to the switch you didn’t turn on.*
