    Just for the fun of it

    1. A man left home one day and made three left turns and met a man with a mask on. What was the first man's profession?
    2. If you had to swallow one pill every half hour, how much time would it take for you to swallow three pills?
    3. 37 can be expressed using five 3's: 37 = 33 + 3 + 3/3. Can you find another way to do it?
    4. The product of four consecutive integers is 3,024. What are the integers?

    Great job on 2 and 4. My instructions for question 3 were not very good. The object is to use five 3's to get 37. You used six.
