Many of the puzzles could be used as warm-up exercises to engender creative atmosphere in a math class. I am sure that many a math teacher will agree with this assessment.q Alexander Bogomolny Cut The KnotHence it takes 3/60 = 1/20 hour to go 2 miles, i.e. its average speed is 2/(1/20) = 40 mph, which is the same as the speed on the level ...
