dates back two sheep farmers are hitting on each other. As proud as they were they had to boast of their sheeps.
One of them said : If one of your sheeps was mine I would have two times as many sheeps as you.
The other farmer said : If one of your sheeps stayed mine , we would have the equal amount of sheeps each.

Now the question is how many sheeps did each farmer have?

practicing my english..

hey, one question.

If the first farmer gave the 2nd farmer one of his sheep, would the 2nd farmer have twice of the original number of sheep the farmer had, or would he have twice the number of sheep after the first farmer gave him the sheep??

Here is another one:
There are eight water melons and one of them is heavier than the rest. Find the heavy melon by using weight machine only twice.
