Re: Riddles with a Prize, by Mantus Anchors

berry pulp plus water is 1000kg 100% .99% water, rest is 10kg of pulp.So 100% of water is990kg and a 1% loss of that is 9.9kg. So the now drying berries weigh 9.9 kg less than when fresh. 990.1 kg of second class product. Top up or renegotiate the price or both. What would the average cruiser do with that many berries?

If it takes a hen and a half a day and a half to lay an egg and a half, how long does it take a bantam rooster to make a hardware store from a brass doorknob

Re: Riddles with a Prize, by Mantus Anchors

Too late. I type too slow but here's how I figured it out:

99/98=1000-10/x-10
97,020=99x-10
97,030=99x
980.1=x

Add 10 for the weight of the berries
980.1+10=990.1

The answer is 990.1 KG

Bantam roosters don't make hardware stores.

Julie, you'd be surprised at what a rooster can do with the proper encouragement! Med , Ive spent many summers picking blackberries up the coast to produce 15 or 20 gallons of vino (with some considerable success) This year I'm working my way through 30 gallons of rhubarb/ orange/ginger. Welcome to sample if you come this way.

Re: Riddles with a Prize, by Mantus Anchors

Very interesting responses guys! But Med Sailor takes it......
500 kg is the right answer...

1% dry stuff = 10 kg and 99%= 990 kg water
2% dry stuff = 10 kg and 98%= 490 kg water thus total weight is 500 Kg

Thank you for playing and I will see you guys Monday....

I'll take you up on that for sure! We have tonnes of backberries down here as well. I may have to do that next year....

I'll trade you some samples of my home brewed beer. I've managed to perfect the process of brewing really good beer, with a minimum of equipment, on the boat. :-)

Re: Riddles with a Prize, by Mantus Anchors

Would we be obligated to calculate HST on trade and barter? Or just be scofflaws and go straight to the trade value of a liter of thunder road? (White rum to some folks) Newfies call er screech. I grow mint too.
