Puzzle/Riddles

Post by Trollking on Wed Nov 19, 2014 9:00 am

PUZZLES AND RIDDLES


A while back we had a couple puzzles pop up and I have decided to bring them back (hopefully)by creating a thread.

To start off what is you favourite riddle it doesn't have to be hard, it just has to be a riddle that you would tell others.

Yeah keep it clean

My favourite is:

'Golden treasures I contain, guarded by an army of hundreds and thousands. Stored in a labyrinth where no man walks, yet men come often to seize my gold.'

Here is a old one------
"You are shown two doors - one leading to hell and the second one to heaven and only the door guards know what is behind the doors. One guard is always lying and the other is always telling the truth (of course, you don't know who is lying). You can ask only one guard one question.
What question can get you to heaven?"

The answer is----

"If I were to ask the other guard which door goes to heaven, what
would he say?"

Two men are talking in the street, and this conversation arises:

- ¿How many kids do you have?
- 3
- ¿And how old are they?
- Well, the product of their ages is 36, and the sum of their ages is the number of this house.
- ¿What else?
- Oh yeah, the older one plays the piano.
- Oh, alright man.

Tell me their ages, and justify why that's the only possible answer.

For Eddy's puzzle:

It's easy enough to get a possible set of solutions, just by factoring 36:
   36 = 6 x 6
        = 3 x 3 x 2 x 2 x (however many 1's we want)
=> Their ages are either
36, 1, 1  (sum = 38)
18, 2, 1  (sum = 21)
12, 3, 1  (sum = 16)
9, 2, 2   (sum = 13)
9, 4, 1   (sum = 14)
6, 3, 2   (sum = 11)
6, 6, 1   (sum = 13)
4, 3, 3   (sum = 10)
(I'm pretty sure that's all the options)

We also know that having the sum of the ages is not sufficient information, otherwise the person asking about the kids wouldn't have needed a follow-up question.
=> The number of the house must have been 13, for which there are two possibilities.
=> The ages of the kids must be either:
9, 2, 2     or      6, 6, 1

The last piece of information that we have is that there is an older child.
=> The ages must be 9, 2, 2.

That's a good puzzle, Eddy. I hadn't heard that one before.

@thunder

Is it a puzzle or one of your art sessions? I wouldn't know as it doesn't come with a question let alone an explanation.

Here's a puzzle I've always liked.

Find a 9 digit number that uses each digit from 1 to 9 once, such that the first digit is divisible by 1, the first two digits form a number divisible by 2, the first three digits form a number divisible by 3, and so on.

For example: 123456789
1 is divisible by 1
12 is divisible by 2
123 is divisible by 3
but 1234 is NOT divisible by 4, so 123456789 does not work.

Try to solve it without just guessing. It is possible to use rules of divisibility to solve it.

Answer:

12365 32165 12965 38125 74125 92165 98125 14725 32765 18925 72365 78325 92765 38725 18325 36925 38725 72965 78925 96325 98165 14765 18965 38165 74165 98765 18365 38765 78365

The first 5 numbers have to be one of these

Then

123654 321654 129654 723654 741258 921654 981652 147258 327654 189654 729654 783654 927654 987654 183654 369258 387654 381654 963258
Are possible 6 digit numbers

Then
1472583 3216549 1296547 7296541 7836549 9216543 3816547 9632587 9816527

for 7 digits

38165472
then

the answer is
381654729
