comment MENSA IQ Test and rules of maths
@ppumkin there's something called "fair use" about copyrighted material... and you can always tell us what was the original question, without using their exact words.

:) and that's the graphical way to show what I answered and was "it's not different from Robert Israel answer"... graphical are always a good way to start

Except that you don't need to multiply any variable by 2 or 3, you just keep adding up... Specially because the question asked for a "simpler method". Just adding up does this.

comment $10=c+d$ and $c$ is one more than $d$.
Observe that (the piece you transcribed) doesn't limit 'c' and 'd' to be integers...

comment How to explain that division by $0$ yields infinity to a 2nd grader
1st: you could try parenting.stackexchange.com ; 2nd: I'd like to know what was tought to all those falks when they were in the 2nd grade and had to learn what was "2/0". Because it's clear that now, in their ages, everybody gets the idea that "x/0" is not defined and so on, but I don't think they learn that in the 2nd grade, and somehow they got the right answer afterwards...

comment How do you find the center of a circle with a pencil and a book?
+1 for the BAROMETER link. And regarding size of book and pencil and circle: the OP provided the pictures of everything, and it's possible to observe that the circle is smaller than the book and the pencil...

This reminds me when I didn't got a "correct" in an answer I provided, when I should use 3 microprocessor instructions to have something done and I could do that with just 2 instructions... some teachers can be boring, sometimes... You don't really need to use the book.
