Weekend Brainteaser!

Last weekends brainteaser meant you had to think outside of the square for the answers...

Here are another couple to get you thinking, possibly a wee bit easier???

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

How many seconds are in a year?

If A costs $1, B costs $2, C costs $3, D costs $4 etc, 
can you find a word that equals $50?

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?

Don't forget team, a pick of the prize box for the first correct comment for each Brainteaser (to be fair, maximum of one prize per person!), just click on the comment box below, leave your answer, don't forget to leave your name.

Have a great long weekend everyone, see you on Tuesday.


  1. The train from New York City. When the two engines meet, the cars stretching back behind the train from New York are closer than all the cars from Los Angeles.
