    New puzzle while we are waiting on April.

    A bookworm eats from the first page of an encyclopaedia number 1 to the last page of encyclopaedia number 5. The bookworm eats in a straight line. Each encyclopaedia consists of 400 pages. Each page is 0.01 inches thick and each cover is 0.25 inches thick. What distance does the bookworm eat through?

    It might be 11.98 inches depending on how picky you want to be about it. But anyway.

    Okay- I guess I could actually think about it. That might help but then again, what else are you going to be doing with your afternoon? I'm trying to keep you busy!

    6 inches?

    And here is my puzzle:
    As I was going to St. Ives,
    I met a man with seven wives.
    Each wife had seven sacks,
    Each sack had seven cats,
    Each cat had seven kits.
    Kits, cats, sacks and wives,
    How many were going to St. Ives?

    I got 22 for IWBM's

    .01 x 400 x 5 = 20
    +
    .25 x 5 x 2 = 2.5

    equals 22.5
    -
    2 covers (he went from the first PAGE to the last PAGE)
    .5

    equals 22

    but that is the same answer that snwhtNdwrfs got... so maybe I'll go with 22.5
