An old Mathematics book contained this addition sum which had been marked correct by the teacher:

The three squares in the diagram are where the paper was so bad I couldn't read them.

What were the three missing numbers?

My answer will be 0, 9 and 0 as 072 + 398 = 470.

My answer is 872 - 398 = 474. Cannot be addition cos cannot put 0 in front of any number. Therefore, to form the smallest 3 digit number with 0, 3, 8 answer is 308.

772 not 872, right? If it's subtraction...

You have 2047 lemons and 11 bags to distribute these lemons in all the bags in any way you choose. However, when I ask for a certain number of lemons you have to give them in terms of bags without transferring the lemons from any other bags. How would you distribute the lemons?

According to the traditional song, on the first day of Christmas (25th December), my true love sent to me:

. A partridge in a pear tree

On the second day of Christmas (26th December), my true love sent to me THREE presents:

. Two turtle doves
. A partridge in a pear tree

On the third day of Christmas (27th December and so on) my true love sent to me SIX presents:

. Three French hens
. Two turtle doves
. A partridge in a pear tree

This carries on until the the twelfth day of Christmas, when my true love sends me:

Twelve drummers drumming
Eleven pipers piping
Ten lords a-leaping
Eight maids a-milking
Seven swans a-swimming
Six geese a-laying
Five gold rings
Four calling birds
Three French hens
Two turtle doves
A partridge in a pear tree

After the twelve days of Christmas are over, how many presents has my true love sent me altogether?

Total = (12 + 22 + 30 + 36 + 40 + 42) × 2 = 364

Ans : 364 presents.
