This should keep you busy

Although the great scientist's brain was only of average size, weighing 1,230 grams, certain areas contains an unusually high number of folds and grooves.

When Einstein wrote this riddle he apparently said that 98% of the world would not be able to solve it:

There are 5 houses in five different colours.

In each house lives a person with a different nationality.

These five owners drink a certain type of beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar and keep a certain pet.

No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar or drink the same beverage.

The question is: Who owns the fish?

Hints

The Brit lives in the red house

The Swede keeps dogs as pets

The Dane drinks tea

The green house is on the left of the white house

The green house's owner drinks coffee

The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds

The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill

The man living in the centre house drinks milk

The Norwegian lives in the first house

The man who smokes blends lives next to the one who keeps cats

The man who keeps horses lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill

The owner who smokes BlueMaster drinks beer

The German smokes Prince

The Norwegian lives next to the blue house

The man who smokes blend has a neighbour who drinks water

The sum of each two adjacent blocks gives the number above.

What number should replace the question mark?

After the strenuous car cleaning I think you deserve a well earned sit down with feet up and a nice cup of tea? I'll leave this repeat for someone else to enjoy.

Here is an unusual safe. Each of the buttons must be pressed once only in the correct order to reach the centre X and open the safe. The number of moves and direction to move is marked on each button.

Which button is the first you must press?

After improvements 15 of them retested the product and the average score rose to 5 out of 10.

Divide 110 into two parts so that one will be 150 percent of the other. What are the 2 numbers?

Fractionally the breakdown is 3/5 + 2/5.

110 x 3/5 = 66

110 x 2/5 = 44

66 and 44.
