I was confused by the proper anatomical terminology,I was expecting something a little more coarse.
Here's one :
If a train leaves station A and travels at 65mph until it reaches station B 33 miles away waits for 5 minutes and then travels at 50mph from station B to station C another 21 miles away.How old are the cheese and tomato rolls at station B ?
So, yes, you take the 3 from the 33 and put it before the 65 so that is 365 days. Then you take the other 3 from the 33. Next you add A equals 1, B equals 2 and C equals 3 to make 6. And, of course, then in goes the 5 from the minutes. So that is a second 365 days. Then you add the 2 and the 1 from 21 to make 3. But the question specifically refers to B so in order for the answer to fully address it you have to add B=2 to that 3 to make 5. Consequently, the cheese and tomato rolls are 2 years and 5 days old.
