### Brain Teasers

# Eating, Laughing, Thinking, and Yawning

Math
Math brain teasers require computations to solve.

Twice the number of people eating equals half of the people who are laughing; if twenty people are thinking, and all of the people thinking are also all of the people laughing... and a quarter of the people laughing are also yawning, then how many people are yawning? How many people are eating?

### Hint

It is a low level of math, nothing too hard. It just takes some thinking.### Answer

E= eatingL= laughing

T= thinking

Y= yawning

E= 0.25L

20= T

20= L

E= 0.25 x 20

E= 5

Y= 0.25 x 20

Y= 5

There are five people eating and five people yawning.
