What mathematical symbol can be put between 5 and 9, to get a number bigger than 5 and smaller than 9?  ;)

A brick weighs 1 kg plus the half of its total mass. How much the brick weigh?  :)

Right. :)

Now I have to translate a problem from Greek, with a little help from Google translation, and I hope I will manage to give you the right meaning.

A spy is standing outside a camp and trying to hear from the guard and the inmates at the camp, what is the password and the pass phrase (please correct me here, I don't know the correct words) , in order to get inside it. After two people entered the camp, the spy excited realizes that he learned what he was asking for.

What was said among the guard and those who entered the camp:


A.  12!
       6!

B. 6!
    3!

So the spy moves forward and faces the guard. He knows that the guard will tell him a number and he will have to answer exactly the half. Very simple!!!

-Ten! the guard says.
-Five! the spy answers!

And then, to his surprise, the guard is arresting him! WHY? WHAT HE SHOULD ANSWER?

Hmmmm. The description (translation) is confusing, yet I'll take a stab:

18 ?

(12+6=18; 6x3=18)

2 ?

(12 divided by 6; 6 divided by 3)

Twelve = six letters
Six = three letters
Ten = three letters

Yes, 3 is the correct answer, as the trick has to do with the number of letters in each word-number.

In Greek the logic behind the explanation is stronger, as the problem talks about three camp's visitors.

A.
Guard: 12 (δώδεκα, twelve > 6 letters)
Visitor: 6

B.
Guard: 6 (έξι, six > 3 letters)
Visitor: 3

C:
Guard: 8 (οχτώ > 4 letters, does not much with the english word eight which has 5 letters, so I left this behind).
Visitor: 4

Great. Do I win a prize? How about a week on Zakynthos or Cepholonia next August, all expenses paid? I was married in Greece, to a Greek woman. Real Greece! I prefer the Ionian Sea.

Please let me know.
