A Boat Race

The Yacht club recently held a boat race. The captain had some difficulty deciding the order of rowing in the boat for his crew.

3 of his crew were strokeside oarsmen only and 2 of them were bow side oarsmen only. Weights and personal preferences were not important really.

In how many ways the captain could have arranged his eight men to form the crew?

The Cycle Race Brain Teaser

Krishna and Bala decided to have a bicycle race. But the problem was that they had only one bicycle between them! Krishna had a solution. As the road to the airport had a stone demarcating every kilometer, he would ride from the first stone to the fifth, and Bala could ride the remaining distance from the fifth to the tenth stone. Then they could take their respective times with a stopwatch to see who was faster. The ‘race’, however, was a failure. Can you say why?
