four Patrol Leaders from 1st Gilwell Scout Troop are out on a
night hike. They have to catch a train that leaves in 17 minutes from the
other side of the river and there is only one bridge which they all must
cross to get to the station.
four begin on the same side of the bridge and require your directions to
catch the train on time. There is only one torch and the bridge can only
support the weight of two people at a time. Any group that crosses (either 1
or 2 people) must carry the torch. The torch must be walked back and forth
(it cannot be thrown etc)
person walks at a different speed but a pair must walk at the speed of the
Alice takes 1 minute to
cross, Barry takes 2 mins, Colin takes 5 mins, David takes 10 mins
For example If Alice and David walk across first 10 minutes have
passed when they get to the other side of the bridge. If David returns with the torch 20 minutes have passed and
they have missed the train (which by the way is running on time and will not
wait for late passengers)
is no trick behind this. It is the simple movement of people in the
appropriate order. There are two known answers and the first Cub Scout to
find a correct answer will receive a prize for their skill.

If Picasso is worth 28
And Monet is worth 22
How much is Raphael worth?
34. Take the numerical
value of each letter (i.e. a is letter 1, z is letter 26), then add the
numbers to obtain the "worth" of each letter (z would be 8; 2 + 6.
Exception: letter "s," #19.
1 + 9 is 0, however assume all letters must have positive value,
therefore count it as 1). Add
all of those "worth's" to get the final worth.
