here is an interesting grade 8 q|_|35t10n

George, Sam, Andrew and Brad each had four dates to four different dances with four different girls, named Cher, Connie, Melissa and Kendra. On the second date, George dated Connie and Brad dated Kendra. On the third date Andrew went out with Melissa and Sam went out with Connie. Melissa went out with George and Cher went out with Sam on the fourth date. What couples went out together on the first date if no pairs went out more than once?

Can you guess where I found this? 2 late: http://www.stfx.ca/special/mathproblems/grade8.html
