Brain Teaser – December 17, 2016

Nurse Kate asked Nurse Lucy to put all of the pills from one big container into three little ones.

She asked Lucy to put 2/3 of the pills into the first container, 1/4 of the pills into the second container, and 2/6 of the pills into the third container. “But this is impossible” – said Lucy right away.

Is Lucy right?

See the answer

Answer:  Yes. Lucy needs to put all pills in three containers, so 2/3 + 1/4 + 2/6 should be 1, but 2/3 + 1/4 + 2/6 = 2/3 + 2/6 +1/4 = 2/3 + 1/3 + 1/4= 1+1/4, so it is more than 1.
