Peegue's Puzzle Page
Welcome to Peegue's Puzzle Page. Logic Puzzles, Mazes, and more... Peegue is always on the look-out for interesting puzzles for you to ponder and solve.
In this edition, Peegue has five puzzles for people (and Stinkers) who love to play with numbers:
Number Puzzle #1
A Stinker spent one-quarter of his/her life as a wee Stinker, one fifth of his/her life as a Rainbow Student, one-third of his/her life as a Rainbow Wizard, and the past 13 Stinkeryears as a Rainbow Master. How old is this Stinker now?
Number Puzzle #2
A family of DragonTurtles (one head, four feet) and ten FireFlowers (one head, no feet) are visited by a group of Stinkers (one head, two feet). Together they have 60 heads and 130 feet. How many DragonTurtles and how many Stinkers are there?
Number Puzzle #3
One-and-a-half FireFlowers can spit one-and-a-half Fireballs in one-and-a-half seconds. How long would it take twelve FireFlowers to spit fourty-eight Fireballs?
Number Puzzle #4
If Stinky can collect all Rainbow Coins in eight minutes, and Loof can collect them in 12 minutes, how long would it take them working together (assuming they don't get in each other's way)?
Number Puzzle #5
At MooseJaw's Merchandise, a Flirg and a Flurg cost 25 coins together. A Flarg costs twice as much as a Florg, which costs ten coins more than the Flirg. The Flurg costs 15 coins more than the Flirg. How much does the Flarg cost?
These puzzles might take some time to work out, so don't give up too easily. Make time on a Sunday morning, grab a cup of tea or coffee, put your thinking cap on, and let the puzzles percolate in your mind.
