Bill rode his bicycle 300 miles. Three tires were used equally in accumulating this distance. How many miles of wear did each tire sustain?
Sorry I didn't post on Friday. Blogger was being blocked at work and I couldn't get through!
I'm posting one puzzle, riddle, math, or statistical problem a day. Try to answer each one and post your answers in the comments section. I'll post the answer the next day. Even if you have the same answer as someone else, feel free to put up your answer, too!

300 apiece, although presumably only compounded by half his weightReplyDelete
I actually just wrote out an explanation for why I thought the answer was 100 miles each, but I erased it after I realized that was wrong. It's actually 200 miles each.ReplyDelete
200 miles is the answer. Since the car travels 300 miles, the tires accrue 600 miles of wear in total. Divide that by 3 and you get 200 miles of wire on each tire.ReplyDelete
