I did it as a Math problem but I got 3. And if you had 2 years into that, it doesn't make sense. I'll keep trying, though.

Yes.

If she&#39;s 12, that would&#39;ve made her 7 five years ago. In 2 years, she&#39;d be 14. That&#39;s twice seven.

What do the dead eat, that the living would die if they ate it?



In a stable there are men and horses. In all, there are 22 heads and 72 feet. How many men and how many horses are in the stable?
