Message:  Hope you got the last one....
It was 70. (30 divided by 1/2 = 30 * 2)
Okay here it is....

There's this recipe where you'll need exactly 4 cups of water. So you stroll on over to your cupboard and pull out the only two measuring cups you have. You look at them carefully and start to put all the cooking stuff back. Why? Because one measuring cup held 5 cups and the other held only 3 cups. You decide to save this recipe for another day. That is, after you go out and buy the measuring cup you need. Is there some way to get 4 cups of water without buying a new measuring cup????
