    When John was six years old he hammered a nail into his favorite tree to mark his height. Ten years later at age sixteen, John returned to see how much higher the nail was. If the tree grew by five centimeters each year, how much higher would the nail be?

    OK, much as I'm enjoying this, one more and then I'll take a back seat. A bit of nostalgia for me, as this was one of my grandmother's favourites.... Let's see if anyone lese remembers this:

    As I was going to St. Ives,
    I met a man with 7 wives.
    The 7 wives had 7 sacks,
    The 7 sacks had 7 cats.
    The 7 cats had 7 kits.

    Kits, cats, sacks and wives
    How many were going to St. Ives?
