Okay, I’ll ask three questions, and if you miss one I get your house. Fair enough? Here we go:

- A clock strikes six in 5 seconds. How long does it take to strike twelve?
- A bottle and its cork together cost $1.10. The bottle costs a dollar more than the cork. How much does the bottle cost?
- A train leaves New York for Chicago at 90 mph. At the same time, a bus leaves Chicago for New York at 50 mph. Which is farther from New York when they meet?

Don’t be hasty — your house is on the line.
