#### You wake up naked and locked inside of a walk-in freezer. Brrrr! You only have so much time before you freeze and die. \n A steel pipe is sticking straight out of the floor. You look inside and see that the bottom is sealed, and sitting there at the bottom is the key to get out. \n Your wrist is too fat to fit inside the pipe. Tantalizing. Your killer must have mounted the pipe and then dropped the key inside as a joke. \n You look around the freezer to find anything else. All you find is a jar of salt and a glass pitcher of water that hasn't yet frozen. Markered on the pitcher of water are instructions: "dump this water on your head to turn into a cool popsicle"

View AnswerPour a good amount of water inside the pipe to encase the key in ice later on, and mix salt in the remaining water in the pitcher, so it doesn't freeze. \n When the key freezes in ice, salt it a little to melt it enough to loosen it from the pipe & floor. Pour the salt water into the pipe, causing the key-in-ice to float. Grab it, chip away at the key, and unlock the lock.

#### There are 3 wooden crates. One labeled "Apples." One labeled " Oranges." One labeled "Apples & Oranges." They are all labeled incorrectly. You can reach into one crate, and pull out one fruit, and by doing so, you need to correct all labels. How can it be done?

View AnswerPull a fruit from the “Apples and Oranges crate. Let’s say you pull an apple out. That crate is full of apples. That means that the crate labeled oranges has to be apples & oranges because apples is already taken, and it is mislabel. That leaves the remaining crate to be oranges.

#### A girl has as many brothers as sisters, but each brother has only half as many brothers as sisters. How many brothers and sisters are in the family?

View Answer3 brothers and 4 sisters. (b = brothers and s = sisters; "A girl has as many brothers as sisters" --> b = s - 1; "Each brother has only half as many brothers as sisters" --> b - 1 = 1/2 * s; Substituting the first equation into the second equation --> (s - 1) - 1 = 1/2 * s; Simplifying that --> s - 2 = 1/2 * s; Multiplying both sides by 2 --> 2s - 4 = s; Subtract "s" from both sides, add 4 to both sides --> s = 4; Substituting into the first equation --> b = 4 - 1 --> b = 3)
