Sunday May 30, 2010

  1. Ethiopian Tune ran 10K in 32 minutes and 11.5 seconds. What was her speed in Km/Hr? 
  2. In comparison, in Vancouver 2010 olympics, 10k speed skating record for men was just under 13 minutes. What the speed in km/Hr.
  3. Usain Bolt ran 100m in 9.58 seconds. What is his speed?
  4. 100m swimming free style record is 46.91 seconds by Cesar Cielo. Whats the speed?
  5. Niemi save percentage in the goal is .916. If Philly wants to score 5 goals in a game, how many shots, on average, needs to be directed at the Chicago's net?
  6. In a class, there are 15 young men and 15 young women. When polled, it turns out that each  men dates 4 women, and each women dates 3 men. Is it possible? 
  7. You have invited 10 guests for a party.   A custard can serves three guests. How many cans you need?
  8. On a windless Sunday morning, you biked on the Colonel By Drive (which is essentially a straight North-South road)  for its entire 10 km length, starting at one end, reaching the other end, and then coming back to the start point. Following Sunday you did exactly the same, but there is a 25 KM/Hr wind blowing from North.   Suppose the amount of effort you put in is identical on both the days -  will the total time of trip on both the Sundays will be same?
  9. What music to play when climbing the Eiffel Tower. There are in all 1665 steps to reach the top of the tower (actually we can't since this is an Emergency Exit!).  Suppose you can climb at a constant pace, determine how many steps you can climb in a minute - whats the right beat - which is perfect music - and how long will it take?
  10. According to the Canadian Tire Paint Calculator, a room of dimensions 4m times 4m times 3m requires 5.58 l of paint for the walls and 1.86 lit for the ceilings. Given this information how will you determine how much paint you will require for your room?
  11. Geometric Construction: Draw a triangle with sides 9cm, 7cm, and 5cm and then determine its area.
