Can a specific subject provokes interest to Math?

For example, cars. How much does the gas cost in a month? What speed to choose? When do I need to change the tires? How to be on time? How much do I pay for a car during its life? . . .

 

What are other intersting subjects? Finance? Love? Sport?

How to Solve a Problem – Read the Question

Try to solve the following problem suggested by Leslie Green:

cases

What is the difference between the number of letters in UPPER CASE and lower case in the text?

Most of the people and me too answered the question fast: None.

If you give the same answer, read the question again.

The trivial advice is often useful: “Try to answer exactly to the question.”

Do you get another answer? What is it?

Geek’s Questions: The Art of Asking Yourself

A+Click contributor Gerry Geek just published a new true story: Image

A group of friends visit me. They eat and drink everything, even the cat’s food, and then leave. The fridge is empty – only a glass of milk is left. I give half of the milk to my cat Ben. He drinks half of it and then I drink half of what is left. Again, he drinks half of what is left and then I do the same. We continue until nothing is left. What proportion of the initial amount of milk did I drink in total?

I remember the moment when I saw Jane for the first time. We were sitting at the same table at a tea room along with Mary and John. We looked at each other and I was sure that everybody immediately chooses another. If two boys and two girls choose a partner, then what is the probability that everybody chooses the person who chooses them?

Before I met Jane I had a relationship with three girls who lived in the same house. I sent three letters to them. If the postman put the letters into three different boxes without looking at the name of the recipient, what would be the probability that all girls received their letters?
