Puzzle for Today
Puzzle No. 486 – Thursday 23 May
After 12 seasons, the American sitcom "The Big Bang Theory" airs its final episode tonight in the UK. It initially centred around Caltech physicists Sheldon & Leonard and their interactions with their neighbour Penny. There are 279 episodes in total with each episode lasting 20 minutes. A superfan wants to binge watch the entire series. The superfan treats it as a job, watching Monday to Friday from 9am - 5pm as well as taking a 1 hour lunch break. How many days would it take to complete the entire series?
Today’s #PuzzleForToday has been set by Bobby Seagull, a school Maths teacher and Cambridge University Doctorate student.
