A bird sitting on the tree.Some birds(X) flying over the sky. A bird on the tree asking to flying birds(X),'Hi flying 100 birds', where are you going?,Shall i come with you? Flying birds(X) replied to bird on tree ' We are not 100 birds,ourselves plus one more time of ourselves plus half of us plus quarter of us plus yourself will be hundred'

The word you are looking for is 'puzzle'.

It's too convoluted for me and I need much more time to correct all the mistakes.

I am not a teacher.

I don't even know where to begin to correct it, though.

I wish to post one a mathematic puzzle. In the end Please correct if any grammatical mistakes. in the sentencegrammatically..

A bird sitting on the tree.
A bird is sitting in a tree.

Some birds(X) flying over the sky.
Some other birds are flying in the sky.

A bird on the tree asking to flying birds(X),'Hi flying 100 birds', where are you going?,Shall i come with you?
The bird in the tree says to the flying birds "Hi, 100 flying birds. Where are you going? Can I come with you?"

Flying birds(X) replied to bird on tree ' We are not 100 birds,ourselves plus one more time of ourselves plus half of us plus quarter of us plus yourself will be hundred'
The flying birds reply to the bird in the tree "We are not 100 birds. The total number of us, multiplied by two, plus half of us, plus a quarter of us, plus yourself, would make one hundred."

The puzzle question is "How many birds are flying over in the sky?"

much more time...Is it correct?

7. ## Re: Buzzle/Correction

If you are referring to Rover's use of "much more time" in post #2, then yes, it's correct. You can see from his member profile that he is a native speaker, a teacher and a moderator. Why did you think "much more time" was wrong?

Have you looked at the corrections I made in post #5?

8. ## Re: Buzzle/Correction

X + X + 0.5 X + 0.25 X + 1 = 100
2.75 X = 99
X = 99/2.75 = 36

Simple algebra.
