A bat and a ball cost \$1.10 in total. The bat costs \$1 more than the ball. How much does the ball cost? 2. If it takes 5 machines 5 minutes to make 5 widgets, how long would it take 100 machines to make 100 widgets? 3. In a lake, there is a patch of lily pads. Every day, the patch doubles in size. If it takes 48 days for the patch to cover the entire lake, how long would it take for the patch to cover half of the lake? Just give me your answers, I don't care. It's like supposed to be the world's shortest IQ test or something. Supposedly most people who answer 1 wrong are just impatient assholes. I'm an impatient asshole, my first answer was wrong, but then I slowed the fuck down (not too much) and got it right. __________________ "I have a garage band and I have lost my virginity." -Serac, on TMB

I wonder what sort of mental representation of quantities one should have in order to automatically jump to the right answer. If anyone has that, I would be curious to hear about it

Why is that? __________________ My body is just a battery for robots.
