    Have you booked your UKCAT?

    (Original post by Nator)
    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.

    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.

    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
