 Solve it:
 At present the mother is 21 years older than her son.
 After 6 years, the age of the mother will be 5 times the age of the son.

 QUESTION: Where is the father now?

 See the result below
 You can find the answer ...
 Try it !!!!!

 the son is X years old
 and the mother is Y years old:

 In 6 years:
 5X+30 = X+21+6
 4X = -3
 X = -3/4

 The son is -3/4 years old. That means -9 months.


Prove this wrong, 3 equals 2.

1 = 1
subtract 7 from both sides
1-7 = 1-7
-6 = -6

this can also be written as
9 - 15 = 4 - 10

add 25/4 to both sides
9 - 15 + 25/4 = 4 -10 + 25/4

(3)^2 -2(3)(5/2) + (5/2)^2 = (2)^2 - 2(2)(5/2) + (5/2)^2

we know that (a-b)^2 = a^2 -2ab + b^2

(3-5/2)^2 = (2-5/2)^2

take sqrt of both sides
3 - 5/2 = 2 - 5/2

add 5/2 to both sides and we get
3 =2


An IQ Test

note: Do as instructions r given . and Don't get shyyyyyyy
Here is a very simple little test comprising of four questions to

determine the level of your intellect. Your replies must be spontaneous and
immediate, with no deliberating or wasting time. And no cheating.

You are competing in a race, and overtake the runner lying in second
place. In which position are you now?

Scroll down....

If you answered that you're now coming first then you're completely
wrong. You overtook the second runner and took their place, therefore you're coming second.

For the next question try not to be so dim.

2. If you overtake the last runner, what position are you now in? Scroll down..... Answer: If you answered second-last, once again you're completely wrong. Think about it...How can you over take the person coming last? If you're behind them then they can't be last. The answer is impossible!! It would appear that thinking is not one of your strong points. You would make a good weak link!!! Anyway, here's another to try, don't take any notes or use a calculator, and remember your replies must be instantaneous. Take heart!! (that was the dictionary's suggestion) 3. Take 1000. Add 40. Add another 1000. Add 30. 1000 again. Plus 20. Plus 1000. And plus 10. What is the total? scroll down.... Answer: 5000??? Wrong again!!!! The correct answer is 4100. Try again with a good calculator. Today is clearly not your day!! Although you should manage to get the last question right... 4: Marie's father has five daughters: 1. Chacha 2. Cheche 3. Chichi 4. Chocho 5. ???? Question: What is the fifth daughter's name? Think'll find the answer below... scroll down......
Answer: Chuchu??? WRONG!!!!! It's obviously Marie!!! Read the question properly!!!!! ********** Intersting use of cola To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coke into the toilet. Let it sit for one hour, then flush clean. To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers: Rub the bumper with a crumpled-up piece of Reynolds Wrap aluminum foil dipped in Coke. To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour a can of Coke over the terminals to bubble away the corrosion. To loosen a rusted bolt: Applying a cloth soaked in Coke to the rusted bolt for several minutes. To bake a moist ham: Empty a can of Coke into the baking pan; wrap the ham in aluminum foil, and bake. Thirty minutes before the ham is finished, remove the foil, allowing the drippings to mix with the Coke for a sumptuous brown gravy. To remove grease from clothes: Empty a can of Coke into a load of greasy clothes, add detergent, and run through a regular cycle. The Coke will help loosen grease stains. It will also clean road haze from your windshield! In many states the highway patrol carries two gallons of Coke in the truck to remove blood from the highway after a car accident. Now this just FREAKS me out: There was a competition in Delhi University: "Who can drink the most Coke?". The winner drank 8 bottles and died on the spot because he had too much carbon dioxide in the blood and not enough oxygen. YIKES! If you put a broken tooth in a bottle of Pepsi, in 10 days it will fully dissolve! ********** Magic of Math 1 x 8 + 1 = 9 12 x 8 + 2 = 98 123 x 8 + 3 = 987 1234 x 8 + 4 = 9876 12345 x 8 + 5 = 98765 123456 x 8 + 6 = 987654 1234567 x 8 + 7 = 9876543 12345678 x 8 + 8 = 98765432 123456789 x 8 + 9 = 987654321 ********** A small truth to make our Lifes 100%.......

Then what makes 100% Is it Money? ..... No!!!!! Leadership? ...... NO!!!! Every problem has a solution, only if we perhaps change our attitude. To go to the top, to that 100% what we really need to go further..... a bit more. ...... A+T+T+I+T+U+D+E = 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100% It is OUR ATTITUDE towards Life and Work that makes OUR Life 100% Don't you think so?!?!?!?! ********** Q.

Bay of Bengal is in which state? A : Liquid ********** Why do golf balls have dimples? Why do golf balls have dimples? If you were going to design an object with a wonderful aerodynamic shape, you would never design a ball. Because a ball is round, air will flow smoothly around the front half of the ball when it's in flight. However, as the air flows behind the ball it causes turbulence, which causes drag and slows the ball down. A slower ball means a shorter flight. To be just a bit more scientific, when the air pressure in front of the ball is significantly higher than the air pressure behind the ball, drag occurs. A solution to the problems of an aerodynamic ball would be to somehow increase the pressure behind the ball so it approximates the pressure in front of the ball. Because of the dimples in a golf ball, air flowing around the ball is less turbulent, because each dimple creates a smaller area for the turbulence and there is much less drag. To put it simply, dimples in a golf ball greatly reduce drag and the ball flies farther. In fact in some studies, a dimpled ball flew four times as far as a smooth ball. If you'd like to prove this theory to yourself, it's quite simple. Take a golf ball and sand it down until it's perfectly smooth. Then tee off and see how far the ball travels. Then tee off again with a regular ball and see how much farther it goes. ********** Guess the words : 1. man ----------- board Ans. = man overboard 2. stand ------------ i Ans. = I understand OK?....get the hang of it?
