Stan's Cassette (Posted on 2004-04-27) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Stan likes music, and likes oldies the best. In his collection of music he has a cassette tape of “The Cassettes 20 Greatest Hits”. The amazing thing about the 20 Greatest Hits, is that each hit is exactly 3 minutes long. This fits perfectly on a 60-minute tape.

Songs 1 – 10 are on Side A, while 11 – 20 are on Side B. When listening to the tape, Stan does one strange thing. He listens to the first 5 songs on side A, then flips it to the other side. He then listens to Side B from that point until the tape ends. How many songs does Stan hear?

  • The tape is wrapped around two spools that have identical diameters of 1 cm.
  • The spool that is receiving the tape rotates at a constant speed.
  • The tape, when located all on one spool, measures 5 cm in diameter.
