Meat and Potatoes

A mother has six children and five potatoes.  How can she feed each an equal amount of potatoes?

No fractions, please.


  1. She gives each lucky, lucky child zero potatoes.

  2. One's a baby and so can only eat liquid food? xD

  3. Mash the potatoes and then dole them out in equal portions.

  4. No potatos for you! or you! or you! or you! or you! or you! I'm eating them all myself!

    Or, she could mash them, whip them, cut them into french fries and count out equal numbers, potato chips, au gratin, hash browns...

  5. cut each potato into 6 peices and hand 'em out. 5 to each knucklehead. Or...mashing them would be easiest.

  6. Mashing the potatoes and then dividing into 6 equal parts, will do it.

  7. Mesh and feed equal propotion.
    Give them three potatoes: half of potato for each child. The rest is for mother.

  8. Karen's ans make much sense.

  9. Make mash potatoes, or a potato salad, or potato pancakes which are really good actually. Or if one of the kids are elergic then that also solves the problem.

  10. its hard to improve upon perfection, Bonnie rox!



  11. Looks like a lot of people had this one figured out. Mashed potatoes, fried potatoes, pancakes (which I haven't had since I was a kid), etc... All of them make sense to me.

  12. Yipeee! I finally got one right! (must have been very easy lol)
