I'll Start off with a weak riddle, ifya got better ones, post em :3

Bob is a bus driver. Today on his route, he picked up 3 people on his first stop, 1 asian man, 1 black man, and 1 white man. on his second stop, he picked up another 3 pepole, 1 asian woman 1 black woman and 1 white woman. on his third stop he picked up 30 mexicans. 15 men and 15 woman and all had a mustache. Now, what is the bus drivers name?

ps. it'll probably be less obvious if it wasnt written

key (incase theres a few kids who wanna try)

(2)(2)=2x2
^=to the power of
remeber the order of operations

Regardless of what a or b is, since it's being being put to the 0 power, the answer will be 1.

9-7-2 = 0

10^3 = 1000-4 = 996 (8-4x6)^5
996 (8-24)^5
996(-16)^5
996(-1048576)
-1044381696

Which brings the current equation to this considering all the parentheses have been solved

1(0)(-1044381696) =

Zero multiplied by anything is 0, therefore, the answer is zero.

Am I right?

I'll let somebody answer this one, I feel like a jerk answering so much that was thrown at me already.

Here's one of my own, have fun with your headache:

You have a piece of cheese, which can only be cut by a knife. What is the fewest amount of times you can cut into the cheese to divide it into 8 pieces?

you're right piko, but if you just look at it and saw that 9-7-2= 0 and its all multiplication, youd realize the answer is zero, didnt even have to do any work

dont you just take 3 match sticks to make one triangle and place the other 3 in an upside down and right ontop to make a somewhat star shape? the outer triangles plus the inside triangle makes 4 triangles?

3 cuts 1st cut vertically in half making 2 pieces 2nd cut horizontally in to 4 pieces then slice under the 4 pieces to make 8?

@Piko's riddlee.

I'm gonna make a stupid guess~
Uh... since you have a piece of cheese that means you already have one slice? Then.. you cut it into a half? Then cut each half in half? Then you cut those halves to equal eight slices? -just guessing- :C

Sorry Little Sis, Aniki pretty much said the same thing you just did, which isn't the right answer.

XD it might be a good idea to post the answer if noone can answer within a week, itd be rude to post another riddle before one is solved first

True, in that case, since it's been a day over a week, here's the answer.

The riddle never stated the shape of the cheese, so imagine this as one long strand of cheese. We can fold it 4 times, and we can do this because "only a knife can cut it." Normally cheese would break when being folded, but this is our magical strand of cheese. After folding it, 1 cut down the center, and we have 8 pieces of cheese. Therefore, the minimum amount of cuts that can be made is 1.
