Question: A man challenges the greatest chess player in the world to two games of chess. He guarantees that he will win or tie at least one of the games for sure. To be even more cocky, the man says he will play both games at the same time.
How does he guarantee he wins or ties at least one game?
Answer: He just copies the great chess player's moves exactly on both boards, going first on one and second on the other. He waits for the great player to make his first move on the first board and copies this on the board he goes first on. He then waits for the chess player to make his move on that board and copies it on the other board. He alternates moves on the two boards like this until the game is over and he ties on both or wins one and loses one.
Question: Two boys, Trevor and Tyler, are running a 100 meter race. The first time they race Trevor beats Tyler by 5 meters. To make things fair, the next time they race Trevor stands 5 meters behind the starting line.
Who wins the second race (assuming they run the same speed as the first race)?
Answer: Trevor wins again. In the first race Trevor ran 100 meters in the time it took Tyler to run 95 meters. So in the second race when Tyler is at the 95 meter mark Trevor will also be there (since 100 - 5 = 95). Since Trevor is faster he will pass Tyler in the last 5 meters of the race.
