The letters below represent a common phrase.
Can you figure it out?

Well, it's an anagram of "just friends", although I'm not sure how that would represent the phrase.

Tired of the same old thing, two jockeys decided to have a reverse race: whoever's horse crossed the finish line last would be the winner. They started with a bang, but soon they'd slowed to almost a dead stop.

"This'll take all spring!" said one. The referee strolled over to see what was the matter. They explained the situation. He hemmed and hawed for a bit, then gave a simple solution and they finished the race very quickly. What was his solution?

if they truly ran the the reace completely in reverse..the the start of the race was really the finish of the race...and whoever started moving FIRST really finished last as the person who started MOVING last was still at the finish line thereby getting there first (or there was some form of quantum phase shift that tore the bounds of time and space transporting the winner to the finish...and causing the loser to completely vaporize)

Good guesses, but I'm afraid not. The only difference between a "reverse race" and a normal race was as I said: whoever's horse reached the finish line last wins, rather than the normal first one to the finish line.

I'll give an additional hint, though: the official's advice was two (simple) words.

The hint was: change horses. If they race with each others horses. Then the one who finishes first wins because his horse ends last.

There are 3 daughters. The sum of their ages is the same as their address and the product of their ages is 36. (you still can't know the answer even if you know the adress.) Lastly, the oldest daughter has red hair. What are their ages and what is the adress?

This gives addresses of 38, 13, 13, 11, 10, 14, and 21... and thats about as far as you can go...

so the oldest Daughter is the Red Head so the Answer is 2 2 9.

Riddle

Three friends check into a motel for the night and the clerk tells them the bill is $30,
payable in advance. So, they each pay the clerk $10 and go to their room.
A few minutes later, the clerk realizes he has made an error and overcharged the trio by $5.
He asks the bellhop to return $5 to the 3 friends who had just checked in.

The bellhop sees this as an opportunity to make $2,
as he reasons that the three friends would have a tough,
time dividing $5 evenly among them;

so he decides to tell them that the clerk made a mistake of only $3,
giving a dollar back to each of the friends.
He pockets the leftover $2 and goes home for the day! Now,
each of the three friends gets a dollar back,
thus they each paid $9 for the room which is a total of $27 for the night.
We know the bellhop pocketed $2 and adding that to the $27,
you get $29, not $30 which was originally spent.
Where did the other dollar go????
