Math Riddles for the New Year!


“Live in the moment … but don’t be led by the moment, or the people who belong to it.” – J. Aleksandr Wootton

Happy New Year to All! I hope all is well with everyone.  I’ve started the new puzzling year off in a big way.  I’ve switched the MathMaverick Blog to WordPress from Facebook. It is something that I’ve wanted to do for a while. Finally, I’ve gotten off the sofa and done it! Hopefully this will make it more accessible and consistent (there were many problems with Facebook Notes in 2013 that were out of my control).

To start 2014 off, here are some math riddles for you to ponder. They are original riddles and from my riddle book, Riddle-Me Math, available on amazon. Have fun with the riddles. Please share them with others and Good luck

I am a funny number
as you will plainly see
for if you add me to myself
my digits sum to me.

What number am I?

Cats have 4,
You have 2,
And I have 3.
What can I be?

Laying on a table,
Seven coins I see
Can you tell me what they are
If their sum is 53?

Although it may seem funny,
Some say that time is money.
So if a dollar were a century,
Then this would be a year.


Good luck with the riddles and in the new year. Please share these riddles, reply with a comment or like us on facebook.
