Puzzle IconFarmer Stone is quite an eccentric dairy farmer.

He originally had a total 54 gallons of milk in three churns and he wanted to make sure each churn contained 18 gallons of milk.

In order to do this, he did the following:

First he poured 1/4 of the first churn in the second churn.
He then poured 1/2 of the second churn into the third churn.
Finally he poured 1/3 of the third churn into the first churn.

How many gallons did each churn contain before Farmer Stone started pouring?

Puzzle IconLast week I decided to cycle to my Grandmother's house.

On the first day, I cycled half of the distance.

On day 2, I cycled one half of the remaining distance.

On day 3, I cycled three quarters of the remaining distance.

On day 4, I cycled 10 miles.

On day 5 I cycled two thirds of the remaining distance and on the final day I cycled the remaining 5 miles.

How far is it to my Grandmothers house?
