Spokes in the Wheel Are Getting in the Way
If a wheel has 64 spokes, how many spaces are there between the spokes?

Can't think of any trick in the question. I'd go with 64: one per spoke on its right.ReplyDelete
I think a lot of people would think 65 or 63 because of the way we think of wheels. It's easy to figure out the truth, though. Draw a peace symbol and you have a wheel with three spokes. You can also see there are three spaces in between. Then just extrapolate to 64 spokes.ReplyDelete
