I would have written "42", but apparently the technical right answer is "28" or above...— Mads Nybo Jorgensen (@madsvid) January 31, 2018
Well done @BBCKarishma for solving that mystery.
How on earth can 26 sheep and 10 goats can weigh 7700 kgs!!! Dey mean to say a sheep or goat weighs more den 200 kgs!!! 🙄 🤔 😳— Omr_doc (@osteopathblah) January 31, 2018
LoL. Good point. Average weight max is 150 kg .. even if you consider 150 per animal - it needs 51 to weigh 7700.. that guy has screwed it up. I guess the answer is - more than 18 years - min. age to get licence.. 5 th std class...— Amar (@synapse_doc) January 31, 2018
In a Chinese primary school #math problem-solving exam, given data is there are 26 sheep + 10 goats in a vessel.— Jake Lanuza (@videosniper) January 29, 2018
Q: Determine the Captain's age
A: Insufficient Data.
It's not unusual for students to encounter critical thinking Q in an exam. Is there a need to be flummoxed?
"If a ship had 26 sheep and 10 goats onboard, how old is the ship's captain?"— Al Raposas (@a_raposas) January 30, 2018
"In China, if you're driving a ship that cargo you need to have possessed a boat license for five years. The minimum age for getting a boat's license is 23, so he's at least 28."https://t.co/RghK1AEuef
