Solve This!

Yay I've missed this, missed seeing TTB brainiacs at work. 

So we're waiting for answers, accompanied by the "working", ie how you arrived at the solution. 

One person who gets the correct answer gets a gift from me.

Ok then!


  1. 5 soldiers = 10 legs
    25 big Tigers = 100 legs
    125 little Tigers = 500 legs
    1 me = 2 legs

    Total = 612 legs

    I hope I'm correct

    1. Each soldier has 25 big tigers. It means there r 125 big tigers. So, that should be 100 legs * 5=500
      So, the little tigers should be 125*5=625
      Soldiers =10 legs
      Human= 2 legs
      Do u think the king and queen r around?

    2. Oh snap, I think you're right sk. I misread each soldier has 5 rooms, I thought each had a room. I was rushing to win gift.

  2. Why the emphasis on tigers having "4 legs"? How many legs Dem wan get before? These people ehn... Anyway,

    You - 2 legs
    soldiers(x5)- 10 legs
    Tigers (in each room) - 5x5x5 - 125 (x4) - 500 legs
    Smallies - 125x5x4 - 2500 legs

    Total legs - 2500+500+10+2

    = 3012 legs. (ok o. But this tiger with "4 legs" emphasis. Thelma just don't disqualify my answer based on my skepticism. Lol)

    1. I got the same answer


  3. Soldiers legs- 5x2=10. 5rooms of 5tigers= 20x5=100. Tiny tigers in each room = 20x5=100 All legs in total -100+100+10=210.

  4. Number of soldiers = 5 , their legs = 10
    Number of big tigers = 5*5*5,
    their legs = 125*4 = 500
    Number of small tigers = 125*5, their legs = 625*4 = 2500
    Thus total legs = 3010

  5. Soldiers-10
    Big tigers-500
    Small tiger-(125*5)-625
    All together-3012 legs

  6. Replies
    1. Cos ur the only one standing there at the time that are aware of,others are known occupants

  7. 2 legs cos you are the one standing in the palace

  8. What if the soldiers are not there at the time? That would be 3000legs.

  9. Me-2
    Big Tigers- 5 soldiers* 5 rooms- 25 rooms*5 big tigers- 125 big tigers * 4 - 500
    Small tigers- 125 *5- 625 tigers * 4 - 2500
    Total- 3012
    I was solving this, then I was a little curious on why d emphasis on four legs. You can tell the result. He he. But I know maths na is it my fault.

  10. 'You are standing in a big palace where 5 soldiers STAY' doesn't say they were there at that time. So I say two legs !

  11. I'm still counting the legs Thelma,just give me the gift for taking my time at least.

  12. just 2 legs, (Yours), you the one standing in the palace

  13. just 2 legs(the legs of the person standing in the palace)

  14. My answer is 2512 legs.

    Each soldier has 5rooms. 5*5=25
    Each room-5tigers. 25*5=125
    Each tiger has 5little.125*5=625
    Each tiger has 4legs. 625*4=2500tigerlegs
    5 soldiers legs=10
    Subject's legs=2
    Total= 2512
    E jo, I want gift.

  15. Okay I've changed my mind.
    It doesn't state that the soldiers are in.
    So it's 2500 tiger legs+ mine= 2502.

  16. My hustle for the gift is real!

  17. I changed my mind again!*eyelashes*
    It's 3002 legs.
    Big Tigers-500
    Subject -2

  18. its 1012 legs in the room.

  19. SO each soldier has 5 rooms
    so thats 25 rooms
    each room has 5 big tigers ie 5*25=125 big tigers
    each big tiger has 5 little tigers ie 125*5=625little tigers
    so in total you have 125+625= 750
    plus the unlucky person in the palace! = 2legs
    plus the 5 soldiers= 10 legs
    so in total 750+10+2= 762

    Nnenna O

  20. Each soldier has 5 rooms
    Each room has 6 tigers
    Therefore each soldier has
    5 * 6 =30 tigers
    Then each tiger has 4 legs
    Therefore 30 * 4 =120 legs
    Each soldier has two legs so for one soldier including his tigers there are
    120 + 2 = 122
    Then for the 5 soldiers we have
    5 * 122 = 610 legs
    If you include your two legs you have 612 legs

  21. Each soldier has 5 rooms
    Each room has 6 * 5 =30 tigers
    Therefore each soldier has
    5 * 30 =150 tigers
    Then each tiger has 4 legs
    Therefore 150 * 4 =600 legs
    Each soldier has two legs so for one soldier including his tigers there are
    600 + 2 = 602
    Then for the 5 soldiers we have
    5 * 602 = 3010 legs
    If you include your two legs you have 3012 legs

  22. 1 palace, 5 soldiers,
    5 room per soldier
    Total rooms_ 5*5=25
    1 room _5 big tigers
    Total big tigers_5*25=125
    1 big tiger_ 5 little tigers
    Total little tigers_ 125*5=625
    Total tigers=625+125=750
    Each tiger 4 legs
    Total tiger legs_4*750=3000
    Total soldier legs_5*2=10
    Total legs in palace=3010

  23. 1 room _5 big tigers
    Total big tigers_5*25=125
    1 big tiger_ 5 little tigers
    Total little tigers_ 125*5=625
    Total tigers=625+125=750
    Each tiger 4 legs
    Total tiger legs_4*750=3000
    Total soldier legs_5*2=10
    Your legs_2
    Total legs_3012

    Final answer lol.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…
