- 24. 24 Math Puzzle 1 Old Granny Adams left half her money to her granddaughter and half that amount to her grandson. She left a sixth to her brother, and the remainder, $1,000, to the dogs’ home. How much did she leave altogether? See Next Slide for the Answer
- 25. 25 Math Puzzle 1 Old Granny Adams left half her money to her granddaughter and half that amount to her grandson. She left a sixth to her brother, and the remainder, $1,000, to the dogs’ home. How much did she leave altogether? Answer This one might have tripped you up! But the trick is not to focus on the hypothetical amounts, but on the fractions: Adding one half, one quarter, and one sixth tells us that the total is a fraction of twelfths (2+4+6=12). You can also think about it as 6/12, 3/12, 2/12, which equals 11/12. If the remainder is $1,000, that must be one-twelfth, so the total is $12,000.
- 26. 26 Math Puzzle 2 …. Math Fallacy ‘Your Income is the same as that of a Millionaire!’ Proof Suppose the income of or a millionaire is $ x and your income is $ y. Let us say $ S is the sum of the two incomes. Hence x + y = S (1) Multiply both sides of the Equation (1) by the factor (x – y) (x – y)(x + y) = (x – y )S So x2 – y2 = xS – yS (2) Rearranging Equation (2), x2 – xS = y2 - yS (3) Completing the square for both sides of the Equation above, x2 – xS + ( - S/2 )2 = y2 – yS + ( - S/2 )2 we get ( x – S/2 )2 = ( y – S/2)2 (4) Taking the square root of both sides, hence x – S/2 = y – S/2 Therefore x - y ! So the income of a millionaire is the same as yours! Can you spot where the mathematical fallacy is? I am a Millionair e See Next Slide for the Answer
