Well Phooey!!! ...editing error... I'll do it in sentence structure instead.

Perform the following operations four times.

Fill the seven liter/gallon container from the tap. Fill the five liter/gallon from the seven liter/gallon container. Pour the remaining contents of the seven liter/gallon container into the nine liter/gallon container. Empty the five liter/gallon container.

math:
7 - 5 = 2
four times ---> 4 * 2 = 8

Here's the next one:

See the image below. It has 5 times number 20, 3 times number 15, 3 times number 10 and 6 times number 5. Now change the order of these numbers so that all 4 lines (horizontal, vertical, both diagonals) gives a sum of 55.

Trying to find a puzzle Tom can't solve in two minutes I came up with this:

We have 20 matchsticks forming a 4 matchsticks by 5 matchsticks square something like this:

(Sorry, I am not a good photographer.)

Move 4 matchsticks to keep the square form so that each row and column has 5 matchsticks. A hint: try an unorthodox solution!

You've lost me. We have 20 matchsticks and you want us to form a 5x5 square?


Is it against the rules to take a row off the top and put it on the bottom?
