  1. Genius Logic (this one really got me!)

Al Gibra wants to attend a meeting of the super-exclusive Mathematical Genius Club, but he doesn’t know the secret password that would get him past the bouncer who looks like a really buff Albert Einstein. Al decided to hide behind some bushes and see if he could figure out the secret admission code. A wild-haired man approached the door. The doorman said, “ What is the square root  of sixteen?”  “Seven,” replied the man , and the  bouncer let him in. Al was confused. How could a genius give the wrong answer and still get in?  A man in a white lab coat was next.  The doorman asked him, “Seven goes into seven hundred how many times?”  “Eight,” replied the man, and the doorman let him in.  Al was shocked.  A woman carrying a tiny computer walked up. The doorman said, “Two plus two.”  “Three,” replied the woman , and the doorman let her in.  The meeting was about to start, and Al still didn’t know the code. He decided to take a chance and walked up to the door.  The doorman said, “Five squared.” Al  replied, “Twenty-five.”  “Wrong!” yelled the doorman and shooed Al away. What answer should Al have given that would have allowed him admittance into the Mathematical Geniuses Club?
