A ButcherMath brain teasers require computations to solve.
A butcher had a number of legs of lamb to chop up. He chopped each leg into 11 pieces. He chopped at the rate of 45 strokes per minute. How many legs would he chop in 22 minutes?
HintEach leg needs to be chopped ten times, not eleven.
Explanation: Each leg is chopped 10 times. 22 multiplied by 45 equals 990. 990 divided by 10 equals 99.
