    Max Wertheimer

    Jew Score:



    April 15, 1880 – October 12, 1943

    Max Wertheimer was one of the co-founders of Gestalt psychology, a Czech-born Jew who got out of Germany in 1933, just in time. But we're not here to talk about his distinguished career. We're here to discuss a math problem he posed to a friend. See if you can solve it!

    There's an old car that needs to go up and down a hill. The hill is one mile going up, and one mile going down. Because the car is old, it can only average a speed of 15 mph during the ascent, but may be able to go faster during the descent. How fast must the car be going downhill, in order for its speed to reach an average of 30 mph for the entire two-mile journey?

    Verdict: Jew.
