  • A gold star to the first person that figures this out

    Regifting Robin

    How does it work?

    It's pretty clever, reminds me of an old card trick.

    edit: See if you can figure it out before you look at the next post.

    the numbers when subtracted always end up being a multiple of 9.

    Look at 9, 18, 27, 36 etc

    I like stars

                Mebe you're not subtracting properly? You're subtracted number should be a multiple of 9.

                Nice work Barfridge!

                  Ok guys here's another one;

                  Two mathematicians are having a chat, lets call them mathematician A and mathematician B.

                  Mathematician A says to mathematician B: "I have 3 children, the product of their ages is 36, how old is each child?"

                  Mathematician B says: "I require more information"

                  Mathematician A then says: "The sum of their ages is equal to the number of windows on the building across the road"

                  Mathematician B looks and says: "I still require more information"

                  Mathematician A then says: "My eldest child has blonde hair"

                  ------------------------------------------------------------

                  How old is each child?

                    Possible age combos:

                    1 2 18
                    1 6 6
                    1 3 12
                    1 4 9
                    1 1 36
                    2 3 6
                    2 2 9
                    3 3 4

                    Given that being told the sum doesn't yield an answer, if we sum them, we get:

                    21
                    13
                    16
                    14
                    38
                    11
                    13
                    10

                    Therefore, the confusion is due to the two 13's

                    Being told that "the eldest etc", indicates that it must be 2 2 9(assuming that they don't refer to the elder twin as actually being older)

                    So, the answer is 9.
                    "In all the human societies we have ever reviewed, in every age and in every state, there has seldom if ever been a shortage of eager young males prepared to kill and die to preserve the security, comfort and prejudices of their elders, and what you call heroism is just an expression of this fact; there is never a scarcity of idiots." -The Culture

                      edit sorry I thought sum of ages = 36
                      re-read and saw product, then by that time was beaten.

                        did you hear about the constipated mathematician?


                        he worked it out with a pencil

                            hear about the gay constipated mathematician?

                            He worked it out with a calculator...
