Brain Hurts

1) Volumes I, II and III of a dictionary are stacked vertically side by side on a shelf, in that order and with spines visible in the normal way. The thickness of the pages in each volume is 6cm, and the thickness of the cover of each volume is 5mm.

What is the horizontal distance from the first page of Volume I to the final page of Volume III?

Clarification: by horizontal distance I mean what you would expect me to mean, which is the distance along the shelf, in other words the distance parallel to the edge of the shelf.

2) Count upwards from ZERO thinking about the letters used in the names of numbers. The letter F appears for the first time in FOUR. The letter A first appears in ONE HUNDRED AND ONE.

Keep on counting, noting the first appearance of each letter in the names of numbers. What is the final letter that you will note down? In other words, when counting upwards, what is the final letter to appear in the name of a number?

3) The following statement is correct

< F is the first and the seventh letter of this sentence.>

Using the sentence above as a model, fill in the gap in the following sentence to make it correct:

<C is the first and the [...] letter of this sentence.>

Each vol is 70mm thick
Three vols measure 210mm.
Take off first and last covers 200mm
Now I believe the first page will be on the right of vol 1 and the last on left of vol 3. So take off another 120mm.

Leaving 80mm.

I dunno. I have to look at some books.

I could be wrong but by my count it was forty-eighth letter if you use "forty-seventh", and vice versa

Careful when going metric there Ziggy....

Quote:
Whatever you do, don’t write “metric fuck-tonne.” Tonne is metric by definition, so metric fuck-tonne is redundant. Seeing as fuck-ton and fuck-tonne are homophonic, opt for “metric fuck-ton” for maximum clarity, especially in speech.

One hundred and one is not the correct way of pronouncing numbers.

to get from starting point to the finishing poing you have to go through 3 lots of pages (3x6= 18cm) plus 4* covers = 2cm. 18+2=20cm

*the rear cover of vol 1, the front of vol 2, the rear of vol 2 and the front cover of vol 3

volume 1 volume 2 volume 3

Page 1 is on the right side of volume 1
The last page of volume 3 is on the left.


So its 4 covers and 1 batch of pages.

whatever that is in imperial units.

These are all trick questoins


C is the first letter and the next to the last letter of this sentence.

That is the WINNER you silly people.

Answer: C is the first and the forty-sixth letter of this sentence.
"C is the first and the" = 17 letters
"forty sixth" = 10 letters
"letter of this sentenc" = 19 letters
= 46 letters
