There is a question, often posed as a puzzle or brainteaser, which has been popular for generations. It was probably in circulation earlier but came to be more widely known due to the Frenchman Claude Gaspar Bachet de Meziriac (1581-1638). The problem is not too easy to solve but the solution can be appreciated by anyone.
