I decided to solve two Stories With Holes this week as my math blog post. Enjoy!
1. How can half of eight be three?
Answer: The actual digit 8 is made up of two three’s- one forwards and one backwards. Try it on a piece of paper!
7. “This parrot will repeat any words it hears,” said the pet shop owner. A lady bought the bird but brought it back a week later to complain that the bird had not yet spoken a single word. Yet the salesperson had told the truth. Explain.
Answer: The parrot is deaf.
