    Quick Mix

    1#
    The shortest of its brothers,
    Twelve of them in all.
    Once in every four,
    It grows an inch more tall.
    A large heart in the middle.

    2#
    How would you arrange four 3's so that they equal 5 using any of the following operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication or divide?

    3#
    A word I know, six letters it contains. Subtract just one, and twelve is what remains.

    4#
    You are given 6 pencils all the same length.

    Your task is to arrange them into equilateral triangles. What is the maximum number of equilateral triangles that you can make? Each side is the length of a single pencil.

    5#
    Provide the final number in the following sequence:

    8 5 4 9 1 7 6 10 3 2 ?

    You should not have edited it. It looks better when they have the same time on them <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
