Two Mothers and two daughters walk into an ice-cream store.
They each buy something for £0.50 but they only spent £1.50.
How is that possible?

how many boys could catch 500 fish in 500 minutes?

#3

1, There are two approaches to answering this question. First, there can be two different mothers and two different daughters, each buying something for half pound sterling and still spent one and half pound sterling if the store offers a promo of four items for cost of three. Meaning that cost due to one person was returned. The other way is grandmother, mother and daughter, making two mother and two daughters.

2. One person is required to catch 500 fishes in 500 minutes, since it takes a minute per boy to catch a fish.

1. daughter, mother, grand mother
2. 2 boys as 2 fish in 2 minutes required= 2boys
so 1 fish in 2 minutes reqd = 2/2= 1 boy
so 1 fish in 1 min = (2/2)*2= 2 boy
so 500 fish in 1 min = 2/500 boy
so 500 fish in 500 min = (2/500)*500 boy= 2 boys

1. There were only three women: a grand mom, her daughter and granddaughter. Each spent 50 Shillings.
2. If 2 boys took 2 minutes to catch 2 fish, it means each boy needed 2 minutes to catch a fish. Therefore, 1 boy will need a total of 100 minutes to catch 500 fish. Accordingly, 2 boys will be required to catch 500 fish in 500 minutes.
3. The word is queue.
