    Mr. and Mrs. Mustard have six daughters and each daughter has one brother. How many people are in the Mustard family?

    I got this one wrong.

    Thanks, Wegs.
    I was addicted to Martin Gardner's Mathematical Games column in Scientific American Magazine.
    Simply type " Martin Gardner's Mathematical Games " into your favorite 'Search Engine'...then...diversion...fun...brain sweat...are all sure to ensue...!!!

    I’m not much of a math whiz but I like these brain teasers.

    Wegs, not all of Martin Gardner's Puuzzles/Brain Teasers were Mathematical...take for instance this one from :
    https://www.theguardian.com/science.../martin-gardner-mathematical-puzzles-birthday
    " 1. Crazy cut

    You are to make one cut (or draw one line) – of course it needn’t be straight – that will divide the figure into two identical parts."

    ...for some, for others, maybe not so easy.
    At any rate, for the better part of thirty years I looked forward to Martin Gardners writings/games/puzzles in Scientific American every month.

    Like I told Wegs, DaveC426913, if you have not already done so : Simply type " Martin Gardner's Mathematical Games " into your favorite 'Search Engine'...then...diversion...fun...brain sweat...are all sure to ensue...!!!

    Looks like rain today. Sometimes I like dreary days, clouds blocking the sun...and a cup of hot tea.

    Let's try a riddle.

    I have six eggs. I broke two, I've fried two and I ate two. How many eggs are left?
