Weekend Brainteaser Answers!

Well done to Miss Ogle and Mr Ackerman who got the brainteaser for Adults correct, a moro bar is coming your way!

Also well done to Oliver who correctly answered two of the brainteasers for students.  

A farmer has seventeen sheep. All but nine of them die. 
How many sheep does he have left?
Nine (All but nine of the die).

How many seconds are in a year?
12 (January 2nd, February 2nd, March 2nd...etc).

Here's a brainteaser for all the adults out there... (A Moro bar is on the line for the first correct post!)
A train leaves from New York City (NYC) heading towards Los Angeles (LA) at 100 mph. Three hours later, a train leaves LA heading towards NYC at 200 MPH. Assume there's exactly 2000 miles between LA and NYC. When they meet, which train is closer to New York City?
When the meet they will be the same distance from New York (as they are in the same place!).

Don't forget to check in over the weekend as Daragh has created some brainteasers for next week, good luck!
