Daily Brain Teaser #90

Jack and Ben were walking along a road when they saw a sign that said Joytown 126 miles, Sad City 84 miles. The towns were in opposite directions. The boys decided to walk toward Joytown. They stopped to have lunch exactly halfway between Joytown and Sad City. How far away from Sad City were they when they had lunch?

____ miles

I love brainteasers! My students with special needs really struggle with them, but when they finally understand it (and solve it on their own) it gives them quite the self-esteem boost!
