The Hare and the Tortoise
Haretown and Tortoiseville are 99 miles apart. A hare travels at 9 miles per hour from Haretown to Tortoiseville, while a tortoise travels at 2 miles per hour from Tortoiseville to Haretown.
If both set out at the same time, how many miles will the hare have to travel before meeting the tortoise?
Here's one for the adults - though you might like to give them some help.
You have twelve golf balls identical in size and appearance but one is a different weight (it could be either lighter or heavier; you do not know which).
You have a set of balance scales.
You have only 3 chances to weigh the balls in any combination using the scales.
Find which ball is the odd one and if it's heavier or lighter than the rest.
How do you do it?
