Task: try to answer the questions as quickly as possible.

1. 1) Being very tired, a child went to bed at 7:00 o`clock at night. The child had a morning piano lesson, and therefore set the alarm clock to ring at 8:45. How many hours and minutes of sleep could the child get?

2. 2) Some months (like October) have 31 days. Only February has precisely 28 days (except in a leap year). How many months have 30 days?

3. 3) A farmer had 18 goats, and all but 7 died. How many were left?

4. 4) Divide 50 by 1/3 and add 7. What is the answer?
