Aside from my penchant for loving horror, I have one other reason why I like zombies. Brains.
I could really go for a nice big brain right now… or maybe I just want to chew on someone’s head.

So here are some of my favorite zombie story problems for the Halloween season:
An enterprising salesman, Bob, decided he was going to open a brain selling business during the zombie apocalypse. Canadian brains are priced at $4.89/lb and American brains are priced at $2.89 lb. Bob wants to offer a daily brain soup mixture with both types of brains. How much of each type of brain will Bob have to use to make a 80 lb batch that sells for $4.19/lb.
ZombOlympics ™: The zombie “Chef” runs at 5.6 miles per hour. The zombie “Brittney” runs 1.45 miles every 15 minutes. The zombie “Billy” runs 0.57 miles in 6 minutes. Which zombie would win the gold, the silver and the bronze brain awards?
A hoard of torso zombie dogs are trying to chase cats. There are a total of 36 heads and 120 legs. How many dogs and how many cats are there? (Note: torso dogs only have front legs)
Z-cells can be harvested from zombies in order to create a zombie vaccine. You have a strong solution of 85% Z-cells and weak solution of 50% Z-Cells. How much of each solution will you need to mix to produce 20 mL of a 64% solution?
