What Time?Math brain teasers require computations to solve.
Chris was worried about a math test coming up, so he asked his teacher if he could stay after school so she could help him study. She said 'yes' and gave him a note, but to his surprise, it said:
What time did the teacher mean?
Answer2^6*5^2 is 1600. 1600 would be 16:00, which in military time is 4:00 PM.
Chris walked into his teacher's room at 4:00 after school.
"How did you know to come at this time?" his teacher asked.
"Well, I just did the math," said Chris, "and that's the prime factorization of 1600, and 16:00 is military time for 4:00."
"You know all you need to," said the teacher.
