Here's a mathematical puzzle.

0 __ 0 __ 0 = 6

1 __ 1 __ 1 = 6

2 __ 2 __ 2 = 6

3 __ 3 __ 3 = 6

4 __ 4 __ 4 = 6

5 __ 5 __ 5 = 6

6 __ 6 __ 6 = 6

7 __ 7 __ 7 = 6

8 __ 8 __ 8 = 6

9 __ 9 __ 8 = 6

The way to solve this puzzle, is to use ONLY SYMBOLS like addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division (+, -, *, and / ) to make it equal to 6.

NO EXPONENTS are allowed, the only exception is the square root. Even though it is technically raising something to 1/2 a power, we will treat it as a symbol for this puzzle. Have fun, some numbers are easier than others.

(0!+0!+0!)!=6
(1+1+1)!=6
2+2+2=6
(3×3)-3=6
√(4) + √(4) + √(4)=6
(5/5)+5=6
6+6-6=6
7-(7/7)=6
(√((8 ÷ 8) + 8))!=6
√(9) × √(9) - √(9)=6
when i first heard that puzzle I totally forgot about the ! and its function and it was so annoying i will NEVER forget that again

Damn you for solving it lol. When I was doing it, I didn't even know you needed to use the factorial lol, but gj. There are other solutions for some of the numbers but you are correct. For number 4, I had 4+4 - sqrt(4) =6

you are correct there is more then one answer for some of the numbers which makes it a good puzzle you get to see different peoples problem solving skills

Indeed, I have other puzzles as well. But they are really not meant to be written down lol, they are more verbal. But I totally agree w/ you about seeing people's problem solving skills

Alright, if you enjoy logic puzzles take a crack at this little game. It's simple enough: you have to poison the right persons food with the thing that they're allergic to, but you have to figure out who it is you're poisioning, what they are eating, and what they're allergic to. There's 4 different scenarios i believe but they're a bit tricky

My two favorites:

1) Consider looking at a clock when it says 1:01, 2:02, 3:03, etc....What would be the shortest possible time between those intervals?
Answer:


2) You're on a small island trying to find the Sacred Tower--You can ask the natives for directions, but you can't be sure, because not all the natives will give you correct answers: Type A will only tell the truth, Type B will only make false statements, Type C will alternate true and false statements, Type D will agree with the statement the previous speaker made whether it's true or not, and type E will make true or false statements randomly.
You see three of them and can ask only one question each--What do you do?

Answer:




But what if you did military time and continued with 13:13, 14:14, 15:15...


And i liked that second riddle haha

Albert and Bernard just became friends with Cheryl and they want to know when her birthday is. Cheryl gives them a list of 10 possible dates.

May 15_____May16___May 19
June 17____June 18
July 14_____July 16
August 14___August 15_August 17

Cheryl then tells separately Bernard and Albert the day and month of her birthday respectively.

Albert: I don't know Cheryl's birthday is, but I know Bernard does not know her birthday either.
Bernard: At first I didn't know Cheryl's birthday, but I know now.
Albert: Then I also know when Cheryl's birthday is.

When is her birthday?

Answer: (took me 30 minutes to figure this out! I didn't feel like writing answer so I stole it from the internet).
