You are on an island in the middle of a lake. The lake is in a remote part of the country and there has never been a bridge connecting the island to the mainland.

Every day a tractor and wagon gives hay rides around the island. Puzzled as to how the tractor had gotten onto the island, you ask around and find out that the tractor was not transported to the island by boat or by air. Nor was it built on the island.

Explain how the tractor got there?
By ship.

when multiplying 11 by any number, simply add the numbers and place it inbetween!

11 x 21 = 2 (2+1) 1 = 231
11 x 42 = 462

11* 39  = 3 (3+9) 9 = 3119 however 11*39 =429  grin grin so you've got a bad theory wink

3+9=12
3129 . For such numbers, add the tens digit to the leftmost number, and keep the units digits inbetween.
so you have   3      9
                   1   2
                  4   2  9
=429
