Ardent tennis player (Posted on 2019-10-22) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Rodney is really nuts about tennis : he never misses a day: one match every working day and two matches every weekend day (one in the morning - another in the afternoon).

Since July 1st up to last night he played 25 matches in the morning and 21 in the afternoon.

Given Rodney is going to be fired on August 6th, how much time does he have?

Rodney plays 9 tennis matches a week. His 46 matches took one more day than 5 weeks, or 36 days. Thirty-one of those days were in July and five in August. Today is August 6; he has only hours left (maybe only minutes).
