Most egg timers would work in space (zero gravity) apart from the sand hourglass type. The rely on springs and gears to keep time not weights.

### With a seven minuet and a four minuet egg timer How do you boil an egg for nine minuets?

Use the fact that 4 and 7 have no common prime factors. If you run both timers at the same time, restarting each one whenever it rings, then sooner or later the seven-minute timer will go off two minutes after the four-minute timer did - and then you're in business. In detail: m0: start both timers m4: timer 4 rings, restart it m7: timer 7 rings, restart it m8: timer 4 rings, restart it m12: timer 4 rings, start cooking the egg m14: timer 7 rings, restart it m21: timer 7 rings, take out the egg. The egg went in at minute 12 and came out at minute 21 - nine minutes of cooking. This works because the 7-minute timer rang two minutes after the 4-minute timer did; the seven-minute timer times the last stretch. You can also make the 4-minute timer time the last stretch, and this is actually quicker (I just realized): m0: start both timers m4: timer 4 rings, restart it m7: timer 7 rings, put in the egg m8: timer 4 rings, restart it m12: timer 4 rings, restart it m16: timer 4 rings, take out the egg The egg went in at minute 7 and came out at minute 16, which means it cooked for nine minutes.

### If i had a three minute eggtimer and a five minute eggtimer and i need to boil an egg for seven minutes how would you do this?

I would use my watch, or the timer function of my microwave. Or you can start both timers at the same moment, before putting the egg in the water. When the 3-minute timer ends, put the egg in. This leaves 2 minutes on the 5-minute timer, assuming both timers are relatively accurate. When the 5-minute timer ends, re-set it again for 5 minutes, and you will have your 7 minute egg when the timer ends.
