Sarah's Simian Taxi Service can transport 120 monkeys in 4 cars. Elphie comes in with her flying monkeys that have broken wings. She wants to transport as many of them as she can to the vet (although the vet might have a heart attack upon sight of the winged monkeys, and the green girl!) with the amount of cars available. Sarah has ten cars available. How many monkeys can Elphie get to the vet?

Oh, well I wasn't thinking of either the book or the movie. There is a musicall called WICKED that I like alot. It tells the story behind the Wzard of Oz. If you see it, you'll never look at the movie (and the Witches) the same way again.

How does this get approved as a teaser? A very roundabout way to ask:

I can transfer 120 in four taxis, how many can I transport in ten taxis?

That's not a teaser--it's not really even a math problem. HOW can this be 1.37 difficulty?

The difficulty rating does not seem to work. It may be a good problem for someone in primary school.

It's 1.37 in difficulty because you become too disturbed and confused to perform simple calculations properly.
