 notsosmart111 May 13, 2007 I got it after some thinking but that was very good!! It made me think!! HarryPutter May 13, 2007 ahhh i c very good Hummingbird1 May 13, 2007 Ok.... that was a good one. I thought it was too easy until I read the answer. I feel dumb now. Andy_L May 13, 2007 I don't get it angelicdemon May 13, 2007 it was fun... each cat would catch 33 mices in 99 minutes. and then one of those cats would have to volunteer to catch the last mouse for the groupd which would be 3 minutes more... hehehehe ajcham May 14, 2007 What if all 3 ganged up on the last mouse?(!) Just being a little pedantic, nice teaser. katiekinnss1 May 17, 2007 Haha I get it but it took me a while I dont like math to much breathesunshine May 26, 2007 I was doing it right then changed my mind and went down a different path! Shame on me! It was fun trying though, well at least for me, but not those poor little mice! leftclick Jun 30, 2007 you got me, i thought 100 minutes tedger Jun 30, 2007 Yes too many people will try to use ratios dudebomb93 Jul 25, 2007 it would = 100 mins because if 1 cat can catch a mouse in 3 mins then 3 cats would catch a mouse in 1 duhhhh!!! calmsavior Aug 05, 2007 Nowhere in the teaser does it say that 3 cats can catch 1 mouse in 1 minute. P. S. : duhhh! Jeff27 Aug 23, 2007 it was fun and easy!!
