    I was thinking that these numbers represent all the E3, E4 and E5's that Eklown and KLee have got wrong in the last 3 days!

    It's the number of letters in "one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight ..."
    i picked the only number not used two in a row

    put them top to length

    Correct.

    Two trains are traveling along the same track toward each other. The slow train is going at 20 mph while the fast one is traveling at 60 mph. The trains are 40 miles apart. A fly, starts flying from the tip of the fast train, going at 80 mph. It flies until it reaches the slow train, the turns around and flies back, over and over. Assuming the fly can reverse its direction instantaneously, what is the distance the fly will have covered by the time it is crushed between the two trains?

    A person walks up a hill starting at 8 pm and arrives at the top at midnight.
    The next day the same person walks down the hill following the same path, again
    starting at 8 pm and arriving at midnight. Is there necessarily a point on
    the path where the person is at the same time on both days?

    2. if 6 kill 6 in 6, than 1 kills 1 in 1. therefore 1 kills 50 in 50, and 2 kills 100 in 50
