So many people liked the puzzles I posted in Subtraction Problems, Russian Style, that I decided to present a similar collection of multiplication and division puzzles. These two sets of puzzles have one thing in common: kids who go for speed over thinking make mistakes.
Humans have 10 fingers on their hands. How many fingers are there on 10 hands?
This one is from my friend Yulia Elkhimova:
Three horses were galloping at 27 miles per hour. What was the speed of one horse?
Here is a similar invention of mine:
Ten kids from Belmont High School went on a tour of Italy. During the tour they visited 20 museums. How many museums did each kid go to?
How many people are there in two pairs of twins, twice?
Can you add more puzzles to this collection?Share:
