Nice! Might just do that
Can anyone try to explain their methods for this:

Alice's room is furnished with three-leged stools and four legged chairs. There are 17 legs in all(excluding Alice's). How many three-legged stools are there?

Any methods, remember, this should be done in around 30 ish seconds!

=/ no clue lol

there are 3 three leged stools, because what you do quickly in your brain is first 17-3, this leaves 14 which is not divisible by 4 (because the chairs have 4 legs). then you do 14-3 which is 11 and this is still not divisible by 4. then you do 11-3 which is 8 which is divisible by 4. so there are 2 four leged chairs and 3 three leged stools.

I'm just doing the UKCAT. My method is read a couple of books and then practice practice and practice some more and then more pracice on top of that.

Its gonna be 2 four-legged stools and 3 three-legged stools, as 8+9 = 17, done that in like 10 secs I wish it was that easy though, and no real method you can just look at it and tell

We apply somewhere around October 15. So your fine. Why don't you do it before school starts one less thing to worry about in my opinion.
13. (Original post by Scarface-Don)
Sandra obviously lol
(sandra is right yes)

If Anna has 3 brothers and 5 sisters. her brother tom has s sisters and b brothers, what is the value of s x b?
14. (Original post by anonnymous)
the number 2005 is the sequence of a sum of five positive integers, what is the next value of the sequence?

^^ show me the method, i'll be impressed as i don't know it myself

(sandra is right yes)
is it 2406?
15. (Original post by Scarface-Don)
is it 2406?

lol 2005/5 = 401 because 401+401+401+401+401=2005
so 401x6=2406

maybe 2706 ? because 201+301+401+501+601=2005
so the next number: 201+301+501+601+701=2706
Forgive me if im completely wrong lool
