I think we can all agree that Maths is a form of mental illness.

3. On a football pitch, there is a patch of weeds. Every day, the patch doubles in size. If it takes 48 days for the patch to cover the entire pitch, how long would it take for the patch to cover half of the pitch?

Enjoy!

Questions 2 and 3 aren't really maths. I think most people can subtract 1 and divide an even number by 2. They are more about reading the information you're given and taking the time to properly understand it without jumping to the solution you're being led towards by the way they are numbered.

Thick people jump to conclusions. I hear ya.

Sometimes you need to be decisive. Like in emergency situations. You wouldn't want an egghead leading you into battle imo.

1.20 for a piece of buttered toast? That's daylight robbery.

Whichever way you slice it.

But I think most could be tricked into paying more for diagonal toast.

No, but you would want the egg head to be responsible for the design of your weapons, your intelligence gathering equipment, your communications equipment, to have worked out you have enough fuel, ammunition, food etc.

Admittedly, the actual running towards the explosions bit is probably left to someone with a little less imagination

Imagination = procrastination.

They're trick questions in a way tbf, the ones in IQ tests are generally more straighforward. Even if that doesn't always mean easy.
