Trick Question! Can you work it out?
When I was in year 8, which seems ages ago now, we had a Math's teacher who would tell us a trick question every morning to see if we could work it out. Here's one for you guys.

There was rich Egyptian King who had two sons.
The King was writing his will, but discovered he could only leave his crown and riches to one son, but since the son's were twins, there wasn't really a significantly "older" son to follow in the original tradition.
So, the King decided to have contest to decide which was worthy of taking his place.

The King called his sons over, and explained his situation. He told his sons. "I shall give my crown and riches to my most worthy son; I shall set you both off across the desert each on your camels and whoever’s camel crosses the desert last shall receive the grand reward. I shall be waiting on the other side of the desert, good luck.”

The sons agreed to the challenge and both set off anxiously, both wanting to win the challenge and receive the position of the next king. But as they both wanted to be last they set off very slowly, quickly running out of food and water. Many days passed and the sons became weak and knew that if they did not make it to the other side soon, they would both die. But they were both very stubborn, both wanting to win.

Eventually, the two sons came across an old wise man on a donkey, he looked at the brothers in their state of extreme dehydration and near death and the brothers they explained there problem to him.

10 minutes later, both suns were racing across the desert… what did the old wise man say?
