Brain Teaser – June 10

Dr. Johnson has 2 sand-watches: one 7-minute and the second one 4-minute.
How can he correctly time 9 minutes?

See the answer

Answer:

Dr. Johnson has to turn both sand-watches. After 4 minutes he has to turn upside down the 4-min sand-watch.

When the 7-min sand watch spills the last grain, he has to turn the 7-min upside down.

Then he has 1 minute in the 4-min sand watch left and after spilling everything, in the 7-min sand-glass, there will be 1 minute of sand down (already spilled).

Turn the 7-min sand watch upside down and let the 1 minute go back. And that’s it. 4 + 3 + 1 + 1 = 9
