After visiting the florist on the first floor of a hotel, this man can be found by the lift sporting a massive bunch of roses and an agitated expression.
He is planning to propose to his girlfriend, who is waiting for him on the 25th floor. To calm his nerves, he starts thinking about the lift he's about to take. If the lift takes 15 seconds to go from the first floor to the fifth floor, how many seconds will it take for him to reach the 25th floor?
This puzzle looks like nothing more than a simply calculation, but perhaps there's more to it than that.
From the first floor to the fifth floor, you go up four floors, not five, and from the first floor to the 25th, you go up 24 floors.
If four floors take 15 seconds, 24 floors take six times as long: 90 seconds!
It seems a bit lazy for the man to buy flowers at the hotel, though. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt and assume it's an impromptu proposal!
