    putting the rock into the boat will have a higher water level than dropping the rock into the water; since the water level then will go down. i have no idea why i know this, but this was a question i answered in a test one time and i'm still not sure if im answering correctly (◕▿◕✿)

    Im pretty sure that if the rock goes in the boat vs the water when placed directly in the boat it will make the water level higher then if it was in the sea. This is because of how when an object is floating in a liquid, here water, it displaces water thats equal to its weight vs if its submerged it displaces its volume only. And you know that in water since the rock would sink that its mass>volume which means when placed on the boat and hence floating it would displace more bc its mass is more then its volume. I know thats the rule but idrk if i explained it well :oops: basically in the boat = higher level of water vs in the pool

    It does make a difference.
    A submerged object displaces it's volume, while a floating object displaces it's weight.
    Since the rock is heavier than and equal volume of water (proof is that it would sink),
    putting it into the boat will raise the water level more.

    What is weightless...

    can be seen with the naked eye...

    and if put in a barrel, will make the barrel weigh less?

    Heads meaning, the penny coin has 2 sides, ones side is called the "heads" side (the side with the presidents head), and the other is called the "tails" side (the side with the building memorial).

    When you flip the coin and let it drop, one of the sides of the penny will be facing up, if you have 5 pennies, and you toss them all up and let them all fall to the ground, when you look at them, what's the probability that all 5 coins will have the heads side facing up.

    Hope this explains it better :)

    oh man should've seen this thread earlier, i love puzzles
    answer to just #6:
    there are 2^5 total possible permutations, all heads is one specific permutation, hence probability is 1/ (2^5) or 0.03125

    Once you have found out all the possible combinations,
    you'll come to find that there are 32 possible combos,
    and a 1/32 chance that all five pennies will land heads up.

    There are two ways you can do that.

    # 1: Using that single question making it a nonsense question.

    # 2: Asking a question that you can verify.

    Make it a nonsense question like "Are you a rhinoceros?"
    or a question that you can verify like "is it raining here right now?"
