Clock Cheese
  • On a circular clock, small pieces of cheese are placed over each of the twelve numbers on the face of the clock. A cute little mouse begins by eating the cheese over the number one and continues to walk clockwise around the clock eating every other piece of cheese it encounters. What will be the number under the last piece of cheese eaten?

  Please enter a numerical answer
(ex. 1000 or 2.033) and click GO.
