Math Stumbler

I am going to start periodically putting up some questions or riddles to see if I can continue to stump 6SS.  🙂

Answer the question below.

A boy on the beach had 7 sand piles down by the water, 7 piles near his towel and 7 more near the coke stand. If he put them all together how many piles would he have?

    That depends if it’s European sand or African sand.

    If the seven pile together, the answer is one big pile on beach.

    Your class is a very smart class! The answer is 1. He had 7 piles in 3 different places, but when he combined them together they were “1 huge” pile.

    Good job everyone!

    It’s twenty-one. The equation which I used in my head to figure it out was 3×7.
