FROM LAST MONTH
JOIN THE BEARTOWN CONSTABLE AS HE PRACTICES HIS ABILITY TO SORT OUT THE FACTS
#1 "Hi, John. Let's meet at my office. The building is on the north side of Main Street. Turn left down the hall and take one of the elevators on your right as high as it goes. Across the hall there is another elevator. Take it to the sixth floor. When you get out, turn left and look for a door on the right that says UP. Go in, turn right up a short set of stairs, then turn left through the exit door at the top of the stairs. Walk down the hall that goes to your right, and my office door is on the left."
What direction will John be facing when he knocks on the door? JOHN will be facing north.
#2 Jack: Remember that book you lent me? Well, I lent it to my mother, and she lent it to her sister, who gave it to her son-in-law, who thought his wife's maternal grandfather would like it. He did, and lent it to his wife, who gave it to her son Henry. Last night Henry dropped in and asked me to return it to his son. So here it is. Jill
How are Jack and Jill related? JACK and JILL are first cousins. Jill's mother's sister is Jill's aunt., and the aunt's son-inlaw is the husband of Jill's cousin. The cousin's maternal grandfather is also Jill's grandfather, whose wife is Jill's grandmother. Grandma's son John is Jill's uncle (not her father, since in that case Jill's parents would be brother and sister), and John's son, to whom the book is being returned, is therefore Jill's cousin.
#3 What single digit number, repeated many times (to form a long number), multiplied by the same exact long number results in a product of 12,345,678,987,654,321? 111,111,111
