    Re: What's the number in my head?

    Either my puzzles are useless, or the puzzle board is not as popular as before <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>
    Any guesses at least to this one or shall I reveal the mystery number to all?
    Regards,
    Rudi

    Re: What's the number in my head?

    Personally, I just don't understand it. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    What does "Three kids will get the same amount amongst them in generous portions above 30" mean?

    <img src=/S/whisper.gif border=0 alt=whisper width=29 height=17> I've never come across a puzzle featuring young goats before...

    Re: What's the number in my head?

    Weeelllll

    This sounds like a play on words but with the criteria of #1 to #4 The possibilities are:

    36
    39
    45
    48
    57
    69
    78

    (assuming numerical order means ascending numerical order as any numbers put in a list can be read as being put in numerical order) <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Re: What's the number in my head?

    You have been invited to take part in a TV game show, and the winning prize is an awesome sports car (or something like that). You have got to the final round, and the presenter presents you with 3 garage doors. Behind one of these, he tells you, is this awesome sports car. Behind the other two, however, is a goat (or, I guess, we can throw in the sharks with lasers on their heads here...). He asks you to pick a door, 1, 2, or 3.

    Let's say, without loss of generality, that you pick door 1. The presenter says, OK, OK, that's cool, but will this change your mind? At this point he opens one of the other doors to reveal a goat. The presenter explains that he will give you one chance to switch from the door you've already picked (door 1) to the other, unopened door.

    What should you do, stick, switch, or does it not make a blind bit of difference?

    I've read this somewhere, and it does make a difference. I think you stick.

    (Is it me, are we all turning into goat-herds with sticks now?)

    It depends, the contestant may really want to win the goat.

    Re: What's the number in my head?

    This is what they call a genuine puzzle then! <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15>
    I will add a couple more clues. (Once you know the number and look back at my original 5 clues you will see hints...)
    More clues will follow soon...
    Regards,
    Rudi

    What's the number in my head?

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by Rudi on 18-Dec-07 20:52. More clues for this tricky puzzle [img]/forums/images/smilies/wink.gif[/img])</P>I'm thinking of a number...what number is it?

    Use the clues below to figure it out
    1. It's less than 100
    2. It contains no zeros
    3. Its reads in numerical order
    4. Three kids will get the same amount amongst them in generous portions > 30
    5. After its provided to these kids, the kids actually end up with nothing [img]/forums/images/smilies/sad.gif[/img]
    <font color=blue>More clues ================================================== =======</font color=blue>
    6. Think of Lotus
    7. Randy took the microphone and tested the sound saying...
    8. My number does not like ABS
    Regards,
    Rudi
