In the lead-up to the New Year’s Eve celebrations, the town clock was checked and was found to be losing one minute per hour.

It was correct at midnight but from that moment it began to lose time.

The clock ran for less than 24 hours before stopping altogether an hour ago, showing 15:44.

What is the correct time now?

Yep


30 people were given 10 quiz questions, they correctly answered an average of only three each.

After a further 30 people had answered the quiz, the average number of correct answers rose to six per person.

What was the average number of correct answers from each of the last 30 people only?

A2 = average number of questions answered by second group = ?

T1 = total number of questions answered correctly by first group = 90

T2 = total number of questions answered correctly by second group

T = total number of questions answered overall = 60 x 6 = 360

T = T1 + T2

360 = 90 + T2

T2 = 270

A2 = 270/30 = 9

Answer = 9

In a department store, with only one girl working on the gift-wrapping service, four gifts per hour were wrapped in the first 15 hours. With help from a colleague for the next 45 hours, the amount of gifts wrapped rose to seven per hour. How many gifts were wrapped each hour in the last 45 hours only?

Let G1 = number of gifts wrapped in first 15 hours. = 15 x 4 = 60

Let G2 = number of gifts wrapped in next 45 hours

Let G = total number of gifts wrapped = 60 x 7 = 420

G = G1 + G2

G2 = G – G1

G2 = 420 – 60 = 360

Number of gifts per hour for the last 45 hours = 360/45

Number of gifts per hour for the last 45 hours = 8

Sorry, I’m aa bit late, it was Hindley History Society tonight.

MESSI RONALDO COSTA

RIBERY NEUER GERRARD

I guessed that the first one might be MESSI, it was a lucky guess.
The correct letters are the letters which precede the ones shown.
