In a game of six players that lasts for 50 minutes, two reserves substitute for each player so that all players, including reserves, are on the field for the same length of time.
How long is each player on the field?
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!

37.5 minutes each (times 8 is total man-minutes for the team, divided by 6 is total man-minutes per men on the field, which comes to 50, as expected)ReplyDelete
Nice work Abe. Anytime it's a math question, you seem to get the jump on everyone.ReplyDelete
