Underwater in the deep ocean. Even when storms brew, the water deep below the surface is calm and cool. Thousands of treasures have been lost in sunken ships, and amazing creatures live at deep depths of the ocean. At extreme depths, the pressure is crushing. It is extremely dark deep in the ocean, yet also beautiful.
Snow. Every kid has taken a bite of snow, but thousands of people die every year in snowstorms. Watch out for photokeratitis, otherwise known as snow blindness. And if you’re exposed to snow for too long, you can lose limbs to frostbite. Just an inch or two of snow makes them treacherous.
A recent snowfall makes the world white, and kids love to build snowmen, snow forts and have snowball fights. Some people live in igloos, built out of snow.
The man is playing monopoly, and landed on the Go To Jail space. An alternative version of this is, “A man stops his car in front of a hotel and immediately knows he is bankrupt.” The answer is the same, that he’s playing Monopoly, but this time he landed on a space with a hotel and didn’t have enough money to pay the bill.
A + B + C = 17
D + E + F = 17
B2 + B + F = A
C × F = EF
To begin with, B has to be a 1 or 2 or else A wouldn’t be a single digit. Plug in B = 2, gives you 6 + F = A, meaning F and A can only be (1,7) or (3,9). To get 17, C would have to be 8 or 6, but those values don’t work for C × F = EF. So B must be 1.
2 + F = A means F and A can be (2,4), (3,5), (4,6), (5,7), (6,8) or (7,9). To get 17 on the top row, the only option that leaves C as a single digit is F = 5 and A = 7.
C × F = EF
9 × 5 = 45, so E = 4 and D = 8 to make the second row equal to 17.
There are two tricks to this one. The first is 1 × 0. But it’s mostly there as a distraction. Yes, 1 × 0 is 0, but that doesn’t affect anything else in the equation. The second, far trickier element is that the lines ending with 1 don’t have a + sign next to them. That means they should be combined with the following line.
