27. add the weight of the two tool boxes with single tool, subtract weight of saw+hammer, divide by two. You got weight of toobox. 17 + 10 = 27. Also you now know saw weighs 3, hammer weighs 7.

156. 1+5 =6, 6+10=16; 16+20=36; 36+40=76; 76+80=156. I suppose -1.5 could also be an answer.

Forrest left home running. He ran a ways and then turned left, ran the same distance and turned left again, ran the same distance and turned left again. When he got home, there were two masked men. Who were they?

4. This one is solved by adding the numbers in each column. Each adds to 15. Therefor the number four will make column four add to 15.

Inspired by today's live chat discussion

I have a big mouth and I am also quite loud! I am NOT a gossip but I do get involved with everyone's dirty business. What am I?
