Mathematical puzzles can be extremely exciting. Don’t you believe us? Take these math puzzles yourself!

All your life you have been running away from mathematics. The guy has always tortured you. Whether in your dreams or in your exam, the topic has always haunted you.

What if someone comes and eases your trauma by saying the guy can be friendly too? What if we say that mathematics is made by torturing people, and now we have decided to be as welcoming as possible?

In short, what if we say that the subject also has an “easy” face? Yes, it can be manageable too!

These exciting math puzzles are one example!

Can you try these?

## ANSWERS:

Mathematical riddle 1:

The head of a whale is six feet long; Its tail is as long as its head and half its body, and its body is half its total length. How long is the whale?

Answer: forty-eight feet.

Mathematical riddle 2:

King Tut died 120 years after the birth of King Eros. Their combined age when they died was 100 years old. King Eros died in 40 BC. In what year was King Tut born?

Answer: King Tut was born in 20 BC. C. There were 120 years between the birth of King Eros and the death of King Tut, but since his ages amounted to only 100 years, there must have been 20 years in which neither of them existed. This would be a period between the death of King Eros, 40 BC, and the birth of King Tut, 20 BC

Mathematical riddle 3:

At a children’s party, 10 children ate juice, 8 children ate cake, and 6 children ate juice and cake. How many children were at the party?

Answer: Twelve children. Six children ate juice and cake, leaving two of the cake eaters who did not eat juice. Since there were ten juicers, there must have been twelve children in total.

Mathematical riddle 4:

Robert and David played several rounds of golf in one week. They played for a pizza every game, but didn’t buy pizzas until the end of the week. If at any point Robert and David had the same number of wins, those pizzas were cancelled. Robert won four matches (but no pizza) and David won three pizzas. How many rounds of golf were played?

Answer: Eleven, David won 7 games, 4 to cancel Robert’s 4 victories and 3 more to win the pizzas.

Mathematical riddle 5.

Can you combine the plus sign and five 2’s to get 28? Can you combine the plus sign and eight 8s to get 1000?

Answer: 22+2+2+2=28; 888+88+8+8+8=1,000

Didn’t we say that mathematics has become generous? We always keep our words!
