Rum Runners

There is a barrel with no lid and some rum in it. “This barrel of rum is more than half full,” said Charlie. “No it’s not,” said Harry, “it’s less than half full.” Without any measuring implements and without removing any rum from the barrel, how can they easily determine who is correct?

  • Paul

    Since the barrel is without a lid, tip the barrel until the rum reaches the edge of the rim without spilling a drop. If you can see any part of the bottom of the barrel then it is less than half full. If the rum covers the entire bottom, the barrel is half full or more.

  • You nailed it, Paul.
    That is the exact answer.
    Great job, you’re today’s winner.
