A very big building in which thousand monkeys are living is lighted by thousand lamps. Every lamp is connected to a unique on/off switch, which are numbered from 1 to 1000. At some moment, all lamps are switched off. But because it is becoming darker, the monkeys would like to switch on the lights. They will do this in the following way.

Monkey 1 presses all switches that are a multiple of 1.
Monkey 2 presses all switches that are a multiple of 2.
Monkey 3 presses all switches that are a multiple of 3.
Monkey 4 presses all switches that are a multiple of 4.
Etc., etc.

How many lamps are switched on after monkey 1000 pressed his switches? And which lamps are switched on?

Three horses are standing in a triangular field, which is exactly 100 yards on each side. One horse stands at each corner; and simultaneously all three set off running. Each horse runs after the horse in the adjacent corner on his left, thus following a curved course, which terminates in the middle of the field, all three horses arriving there together. The horses obviously ran at the same speed, but just how far did they run?
