Trollking, your answer was right, but the fun of this kind of puzzle is in how you solve it. What you did was essentially be a computer, and, although there is certainly some credit that needs to be given for that, I was thinking more along the lines of using math theory to solve it, rather than just listing all the possibilities and testing them.

For example:
This number is 9 digits long: x x x x x x x x x
We know that for a number to be divisible by 5, it must end in a 5 or a 0, and 0 isn't an option.
=> the number looks something like:
    x x x x 5 x x x x

And so on, until the solution is found.

Your answer was right, but in my opinion this is a more fun way to solve it.

2 puzzles from one of my favourite book

1. In a street there are five houses, painted five different colours.
2. In each house lives a person of different nationality
3. These five homeowners each drink a different kind of beverage, smoke different brand of cigar and keep a different pet.

THE QUESTION: WHO OWNS THE FISH?

HINTS

1. The Brit lives in a red house.
2. The Swede keeps dogs as pets.
3. The Dane drinks tea.
4. The Green house is next to, and on the left of the White house.
5. The owner of the Green house drinks coffee.
6. The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.
7. The owner of the Yellow house smokes Dunhill.
8. The man living in the centre house drinks milk.
9. The Norwegian lives in the first house.
10. The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats.
11. The man who keeps horses lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill.
12. The man who smokes Blue Master drinks beer.
13. The German smokes Prince.
14. The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
15. The man who smokes Blends has a neighbour who drinks water.

the second one is more mathematical

THe trainee clowns at Bozo College are in a state of shock. A thief have deprived the college of 873 yellow baloons OMG.

Luckily there was a witness who said the person that stole the item was wearing a red nose.

Previous reseach has shown that theses witnesses are 80% correct

It is also know that 85% of the clowns on the college have blue noses and 15% are red nosed.

What is the probability that the theif had a red nose.
(assume the witness is telling the truth about what he thinks he saw)

and a bonus one

The following peoplewere at a family reunion
1 grandfather
1 grandmother
2 fathers
2 mothers
4 children
3 grandchildren
2 sisters
1 brother
2 daughters
2 sons
1 father in law
1 mother in law
and 1 daughter in law

What is the fewest number of people who could of attended the reunion and who were they (family positions)

I made a pseudo-cipher which took me only like several minutes and there might be multiple solutions or it just might be idiotic for everyone which is what i most believe in.
I will give the solution in about 5 days if no one will guess the answer.
Here it is.......:

^<7 0 <1 <13 0 <2 <1 <4 0 <1 >7 0 >7 <8 <9 >8

Hint codes:

A=<1-<13|>13->1 A=<|>

Well, I solved Trollking's bonus problem from way back in April. Just found this thread, and no one has done it yet...

The question:
Trollking wrote:The following peoplewere at a family reunion
1 grandfather
1 grandmother
2 fathers
2 mothers
4 children
3 grandchildren
2 sisters
1 brother
2 daughters
2 sons
1 father in law
1 mother in law
and 1 daughter in law

What is the fewest number of people who could of attended the reunion and who were they (family positions)

Answer:
There are 7 people at the reunion. The grandfather and grandmother, with their son, his wife, and their son and two daughters.

Lolz, totally forgot about it.

P.s.: i made a mistake, it should be:

^<9 0 <1 <13 0 <2 <1 <4 0 <1 >7 0 >7 <8 <9 >8

Nevertheless, the answer is:

"I am bad at this"

I hope i will not forget again; but now i'd like you to guess why this is the answer (how was it coded).

Here is a pattern to figure out
1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,?
What is the missing number?

A fairly easy puzzle, but it is my favorite.

Spoiler Alert :
The answer is the number 6 because we all know that that is the best number and that's why it is missing
The Actual Answer:
55 its a Fibonacci Sequence in where the term is equal to the two numbers before it added up

@sabk, i had the same question on an IQ test :D Btw. you're right, it's very easy and i guess most of the people already know the answer, but no one said it before me, so...

Assuming that the missing number is the one after the last comma; the answer is 55.

Explanation: Starting with the second 1 which is a sum of 0 and the first 1 (the sequence starts with a hidden 0, that's why there are two 1's) you sum it with the previous 1; it gives 2. Then you sum 2 and the previous number - 1; it gives 3. Then you sum 3 and 2 which gives 5, and so on. So in few words: you sum a number and a number before it.

SpartaX18 problem:

<1     <1 = A
<13  <13   abcdefghijklM
0 means a break in the word
<2    <2 = aB
<1 <1 = A
<4 <1 = abcD
0 means a break in the word
<1 <1 = A
>7 >7 >means from the back of alphabet Tuvwxyz
0 means a break in the word
>7 >7 =Tuvwxyz
<8 <8 =abcdefgH
<9 <9 =abcdefghI

Count the total amount of digits divide by 2 (each number will be 2 digits) and now it has to do with something with pi

This thing is so sensitive, it will break even when you just say its name.
(I expect someone here to know the answer to this because this is a sort of famous riddle)

There is 6 oranges in a basket, and are divided between 6 people, but there was still one orange left in the basket. How was it done?
