If it takes six men six days to dig six holes, how long will it take one man to dig half a hole?

How do you get half a hole? A hole is a hole in my book.

im gonna assume it means have the volume, iin which case im gonna say 3 days.

if it takes 6 men six days to dig 6 holes, then it takes one man 6 days to dig one hole. and it takes him half the time to dig half the size hole (assuming he digs st a constant rate) - 3 days

This reminds me of another silly puzzle: If you have a hole in your lawn that is 3 feet deep, 2 feet wide, and 3 feet long, and you fill it with dirt, how much dirt is there in the hole?

Answer: if you fill the hole, there is no hole anymore. I was always kind of annoyed by these puzzles, but some people like semantic puzzles.

Unsolved chess fun...Try to crack this . On your chess board here are 2 Kings...white king on a1 square and the black king on b3. Now from among the remaining pieces , place a third , on the chess board ,such that (a) neither king is in chek!
(b) neither side can make any legal move
(c) the position is arrivable through legal moves
(d) it is not a double stalemate.

Easy Sarah ðŸ™‚

Last move was Black Knight from e4 to d2. Black can't move because it's not his turn, white can't move at all. Neither is in check, and i wonder how you can create a double stalemate with only two kings and one other piece...
