A duck was given $9 - Math Riddle
A duck was given $9, a spider was given $36, and a bee was given $27. Based on this information, how much money would be given to a cat?
Explanation : Assuming there’s a mathematical order to this (not a troll question) the things that stand out would be that all the numbers are divisible by 3 and 9, and the main difference between ducks, spiders, bees, and cats would be the number of legs. From there we have the following Duck (2 legs): 3 * 3 = 9 * 1 Bee (6 legs): 3 * 9 = 9 * 3 Spider (8 legs): 3 * 12 = 9 * 4 It’s now easy to see. Therefore, if n = pairs of legs, then the amount of money each animals receives is 9n. A cat with 2 pairs of legs would receive 2 * 9 = $18
