Brainbusters Answers

And here are the answers for Tuesday's brainbusters...

Question 1:

Guess What Am I?

I am usually long and thin.
But I may come in many different shapes and sizes.
I am hairy at one end and pointy at the other.
When I'm not in use, I am usually found hanging.
When I am in use, I am thrusted in and out of an opening quite forcefully.
Usually some white stuff will be present when I am in use.
I can be used at any time of the day and at any where.
But most people prefer to use me when they are at home.
Sometimes if i am used too forcefully, bleeding might occur.

What am I?

Answer: A Toothbrush! What were you thinking???

Question 2:


A man lives on the 12th floor of a building. Everyday, he will take the lift down to the first floor when he goes to work. But when he comes back, he will stop at the 8th storey and walk 4 floors up to his home. Only when it is raining will he go directly up to the 12th floor when he comes back home. Why is this so?

Answer : He's a midget who can only reach the 8th floor button. On rainy days he can reach the 12th floor with his umbrella!

Question 3:

Hotel Bill

Three people check into a hotel. They pay $30 to the manager and go to their room. The manager finds out that the room rate is $25 and gives $5 to the bellboy to return. On the way to the room the bellboy reasons that $5 would be difficult to share among three people so he pockets $2 and gives $1 to each person. Now each person paid $10 and got back $1. So they paid $9 each, totalling $27. The bellboy has $2, totalling $29.

Where is the remaining dollar?

Answer : The all time favourite maths question. And you get the answer right here.

You can't figure in that each guest paid exactly $9 for the room because the room bill was $25 which can't be divided between 3 people evenly. Each person would have paid exactly $8.33333333333333 each.

Take the $8 x 3 people = $24
Plus $3 they were given back = $3
.33333333333333 x 3 people = $1 <--- the missing dollar
and the bellboy has $2

Total = $30

Now go on and impress your friends with these funky questions and answers.
