There is a well known story of a famous German mathematician, who showed his brilliance even as a young boy.
While in elementary school, he was given the problem of finding the sum of all the whole numbers from 1 to 100.
For most of us it would be a long and difficult task of adding "1+2+3+4 and so on."
This young lad, however, solved the problem in his head in just a few moments.
What is the answer and how did he manage to do it in his head?

A lone, old, wise wolf was walking through the snow on a blistery, cold winter's night. The wolf had not eaten in several weeks, and was on the verge of starvation. He was terribly thin and hungry. He soon came upon a pasture with a herd of sheep inside. Several sheep would provide the perfect meal, plump and promising. The wolf might not get another chance to eat for days. In his thin state, the wolf could easily slip through the fence surrounding the pasture and kill as many sheep as he pleased. But when he finished eating, he would be too big to slip through the fence again and the farmer might find him stuck in the pasture with the sheep.

How did the wolf manage to eat as many sheep as he liked and not be caught in the pasture by the farmer the next day?
