There are two boys at an international math contest in December 2013; one is British and one is American. They both write their names, the date, and their

answers on the paper. The only problem is that they both have the same name and the papers cannot be told apart. What is the date?


Answer: December 12th, 2013.In America dates are written Month/Day/Year and in Britain Day/Month/Year, so the day and month must be the same so they can be changed around with the date remaining the same.
