Riddle: If you have two hourglasses -- one four-minute timer and one seven-
minute timer, how can you measure nine minutes?
Answer: Turn over both hourglasses at once.
When the four-minute hourglass runs out, turn it over.
When the seven-minute hourglass runs out, turn it over.
When the four-minute timer runs out this time (eight minutes have
elapsed), the seven-minute hourglass has been running for one
minute. Now turn over the seven minute timer back over. When the
timer runs out, nine minutes have elapsed.
