It takes three cats three minutes to catch three mice. (Each cat can catch a mouse in three minutes.)

Assuming they continue catching mice at the same pace, how long will it take the three cats to catch 100 mice?



Answer

102 minutes

Each cat catches a mouse in three minutes. It would take them six minutes to catch six, nine to catch nine, and 99 to catch 99; but what about the 100th mouse? It would still take a cat three minutes to catch him, making the total 102 minutes.
