    Default Puzzle #7

    In a lake, there is a patch of lily pads. Every day, this patch doubles in size. If it takes 48 days for the patch to cover the entire lake, how long would it take for the patch to cover half the lake?


    The bat and ball question, the widget question and this one all come from the same source. Anyone recognise these questions—and what they were/are used for?

    Eh? That will be 47 days.


    Do these questions come from junior cert maths, or may be an 11+ exam somewhere?
