Just for fun...

My 1st is in candle, but not in wax,
My 2nd is in cash, but not in tax.
My 3rd is in plunder, but not in waste,
My 4th is in basket, but not in case.
My 5th is in oblong, but not in square,
My 6th is in father, but not in sir.
My 7th is orange, but not in plum,
My 8th is in clever, but not in dumb!

Who am I?

Just cos I solved it doesn't mean my brain can actually handle making one of these.

Give us another one, I'll stay out of it this time :p

MrsSpookyBuz
09-08-2009, 08:18 PM
Okay, might be a bit tougher...

My 1st is in hymn, but not in church,
My 2nd is in oak, but not in birch.
My 3rd is in rain, but not in shower,
My 4th is in angry, but not in power.
My 5th is in pancake, but not in pie,
My 6th is in drunk, but not in high.
My 7th is in peaches and ALSO in cream...
I've run out of letters, it's not as hard as it may seem!

Who am I?

Alright, a sorta math related puzzle:

Three friends, SpookySheep, MorganaBanana, and Cuzface, all went out picking apples. Tired from having picked apples all day, they decide to take a nap next to a large oak tree. SpookySheep woke first and decided to take her apples home. She counted them up, and noticed that if she took one apple first, she was able to divide them evenly into thirds. Doing this, she took her third of apples [plus one] and went home.

MorganaBanana woke next and thought that maybe SpookySheep had just gone for a walk. She wasn't feeling well, so she counted the apples in preparation for her walk home. She noticed that if she were to take two apples from the pile, then she could divide the rest into thirds. Doing this, she took her "share" of the apples and walked home.

Cuzface awoke and wondered were his friends had gone. How lonely he felt :(. He just assumed that they were both busy nearby, thinking of littlebigplanet level ideas, or something clever like that. He counted up the apples, and was surprised at how few there were. He found that if he took one apple first, that he could divide the rest into thirds. He took what he thought was his share, and went home.

The question: How many apples did our friends pick?

To be honest, I started at 10, which didn't work out! And then I just worked from the next prime number. Not scientific, i'm afraid! :blush:

Hey, it's not a bad method. On second thought, I won't make you work out the second one, as the answer is 40.

For anyone curious, the solution to the problem is:

27n +13, where n is any integer, so 1, 2, 3,...

When n = 0, we have 13.
When n = 1, we have 40.

And so on...

I had fun making that little problem. :)

Now quit distracting me! I'm supposed to be doing homework!

comphermc, if we assume the final value to be x and...oh you've posted it.

OK, maths problems eh...

comphermc and Spooky were sitting having tea in the lbpcaf. compher had a Large Tea in front of him - 3 times the size of Spooky's. After adding milk (100ml for Spooky, and the same volume of milk as he had in tea for compher), and sugar ( Spooky put twice as much sugar relative to the size of her tea and milk in as comphermc did. ), Spooky had twice as much grammes of sugar/10ml as compher, who ended up with 480ml of tea and milk.

Tell me: the volume of tea in each mug, the volume of milk, and the grammes of sugar in each mug.

I just wrote this, so I've only done a rough check, but I think it works.

comphermc
09-08-2009, 10:02 PM
Well, I'll start by saying that Spooky had a measly 120 ml of tea, while I had 360 ml.

These units are hard for me to picture :).

I had 120 ml of milk, and Spooky had 100 ml (not necessary to solve the first part).

I'm still working on the sugar portion. Not sure if it makes sense.

dawesbr
09-08-2009, 10:05 PM
Ah, but you say that you had 360ml tea, meaning you must have had 360ml milk too (whereas you say 120)

comphermc
09-08-2009, 10:06 PM
I thought you meant that I had the same amount of milk as Spooky had tea. I must now revise... That problem is probably a bit trickier, even.

dawesbr

I probably should have made that clearer (I figured putting "he" instead of "she" would be enough, but I suppose it isn't that obvious...)

Spoiler fail, lol.

We now have:

comphermc: 240 ml of tea and 240 ml of milk

Spooky: 80 ml of tea and 100 ml of milk

The sugar part is confusing because those are two ways of saying the same thing, without actually giving enough info. Unless I'm reading it wrong...

OK. I'll just say you're right about milk and tea volumes:

Spooky= 80 (180)
Compher=240 (480)

As an extra hint, compher put 2/3 the amount of sugar in as Spooky.

Haha. I think I got it.
First: January, happens in winter, not summer.
Second: February, the smallest month.
Third: March, not too sure, marching as in standing?
Fourth: April, a girl's name.
Fifth: May, as in it may happen.
Sixth: June, you make sand castles in June?
Senventh: July, as in Julius Cesear.
Eighth: August, as in Augustus.
Ninth: September, it's not November...?
Tenth: October, named for octo-, a prefix which means eight.
Eleventh: November, second to last month?
Twelfth: December, has Christmas and tidings and such.

Ha! Every puzzle has it's piece (I stole that from the tagline of Saw).

Now then, we obviously have some philosophers, scholars and great thinkers here. So, what do you think of these...

1. Let's say there is a bullet which can shoot through any barrier. Let's also say there is an absolutely bullet-proof armour which no object can penetrate. What will happen if such a bullet hits such an armour?

2. In a village, the barber shaves everyone who does not shave himself/herself, but no one else. Who shaves the barber?

3. If someone says "I always lie", are they telling the truth? Or are they lying?

:)

CCubbage
09-09-2009, 01:52 PM
1. The bullet will penetrate EXACTLY half-way throught the armor, then the universe will implode.
2. No one. The barber cuts his hair instead of shaving it.... and looks a bit like Dusty from ZZ Top.
3. He is in fact telling the truth, however is schitzophrenic.

1. No two such objects can exist in the same universe. In a universe where the unstoppable force exists, by its definition, no immovable object can exist in that universe.
2. Several answers - anyone else could feasibly do it, or he could have a beard, or he has male-pattern-baldness...
3. Age-old, this one. Some philosopher in Greek times tried to disprove it. Something along the lines of: "The people from [Greek city] always lie, however it is not impossible for a [Greek city dweller] to say he always lies, as in this case it is possible for him/her to tell the truth."

Here's one for you:

Northland and Southland were happy neighbors until yesterday, when Northland declared that a Southland dollar was to be worth only 90 Northland cents.

Not to be outdone, Southland declared that a Northland dollar would be worth 90 Southland cents.

I live in Centerville, on the border between the two countries. I go into a Northland store and buy a kazoo, which costs 10 cents. I pay for it with a Northland dollar and receive a Southland dollar as change.

Then I go across the street and enter a Southland store. There I buy a lemon, which also costs 10 cents. I pay for it with a Southland dollar and receive a Northland dollar as change.

When I get home I have my kazoo and lemon, for which it appears Ive paid nothing. And each of the merchants has an additional 10 cents in his receipts.

So who paid for the kazoo and lemon?

You're blowing my mind, son!

Essentially what occurs is that the value of the money in your possession changes (as money is not a physical thing, but is dependent upon how much we take it to be worth). By changing the value of the money at the correct time, you have in fact increased the amount of money in existence (WILD!). You have not physically made any more money, but you have changed what the money represents (even if only temporarily).

Think of it this way: You buy 5 oranges for $10 in City A. You take said oranges to City B and sell them for $20. Then, you buy 15 Apples for $20 in City B. You take those 15 apples back to City A and sell them for $30.

Everyone is happy and you gained $20. It's not magic, it's disagreement in the value of things per the economy of each city.

So who paid for the kazoo and lemon?

A Westland terrorist.
He switched your kazoo and lemon for bombs with the same appearance.
So, the kazoo and the lemon sitting in front of you now were bought by the terrorist.
But no time to be thinking about where the money came from, if I were you, I'd be half a mile away by now.

Here's one for you all. It has a perfectly logical solution, with no trickery involved.

You stand on one side of the river, with no means of crossing. However you do have means of measuring distances...but you can't go in or cross the river. How do you work out the width of the river?

I though I was being logical...


Stand your rediculous concrete clownfoot upright to cast a shadow across the river. When the sun is in such a position that the shadow just touches the far bank you stand up a small stick on your side of the bank, to make a similar triangle. You measure the ratio of stick shadow length to stick height (using a smaller stick, to give a decent granularity on the measurement) and that will give you the distance, in metres, across the river.


That logical enough? It does rely on the sun setting perpendicular to the river but still, I think it is pretty good. I could probably extend it to calculate the width even if the sun is not perpendicular.


I suppose there is no sun now though :rolleyes:

You measure the ratio of stick shadow length to stick height (using a smaller stick, to give a decent granularity on the measurement) and that will give you the distance, in metres, across the river.

^How is that less logical than:


creating a form of triangle with a LOS to the other bank and calculating the distance based upon scaling? It's basically the same solution.

Do I just have a meter stick, or a meter rule with centimeters on?

CCubbage
09-09-2009, 08:59 PM
Maybe estimate the distance between where you are and across the river, and a second point along the river which is a right angle from the first point (you can tell this by holding the meter stick vertically to get the scale between the 2 points).

Measure the paces to the point along the river, which will equal the distance across the river.

dawesbr
09-09-2009, 09:02 PM
The latter. I still don't understand why your system works. I see one triangle, from stick top to your bank, to other bank. And I don't see how a ratio of x:y (x being unknown, y being the stick's height) will give you a value for x. CuzFeeshe, I don't completely understand your solution, but the "estimate" part seems to devalue it. However, it is a good base for the solution I have.

No, the estimate doesn't devalue it. An estimate can be a really GOOD estimate, and most likely there is more than one solution to this problem. Since I used to pour concrete, we used this kind of technique to get within an inch of the slab position when laying it out.

So, in a bit more detain:

If you crouch down and use a stick to look out at exactly the same height across the river and along the river, you can identify the right angle position of both points. Then, you can measure along the river one of the points, which is the same distance across the river.

measure:

Subtract height of ruler from height of my eye and you know the edges of the small triangle and the height of the large triangles.

I see now, nice solutions. I see CC has got in here by saying there are multiple solutions - I myself knew of only this one (which I see as very interesting maths):

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2175/2359747622_364b2679e7_m.jpg

You are at A, B is the other side of the river. Measure to C, then to D, then look at B and move towards it. E is the third point of the first similar triangle, then simple measurements and multiplications.

Sorry about all the hassle over this. Things are a lot harder to explain/understand over the internet.

Here's another one for you:

Two identical wheels, one is fixed. In one full movement around the fixed wheel, how many revolutions does the free wheel turn. (ie, the free wheel is pushed around the edge of the fixed wheel, rolling around it "in orbit" (touching))

rtm223
09-09-2009, 09:30 PM
I'm gonna guess the answer isn't 1. That would be too easy.



The beer glasses tell me it is one revolution - 360 degrees, and I don't think beer glasses have ever lied to me about maths before....


BTW you never said there was a landmark on the other side of the river :p

It's not a landmark.Just dig a hole at point A and say it's the point perpendicular. Or throw your fig leaf over there to mark it.

Actually, I won't reveal the answer yet. When it was first published in a very old newspaper, there were hundreds of submissions, so many that it was made into a book. Some say one, some say two. Which do you think and why?

The second answer came from visualising cogs in my head. The cogs were on fixed axles, then I removed one of the axles and thought about the motion. There is a subtle fact about it that using cogs helps with IMO.

comphermc
09-09-2009, 10:18 PM
Alright, I was late to the party, but the answer the circle question was in in fact 2. It's based on the fact that the free plate revolves once around it's own axis and once around the axis of the fixed plate.

Consider the moon for example. The same side always faces the earth, yet when it goes once around the earth, it will have revolved in space one time. If it were to revolve once with the respect to the earth in addition to that orbit, it will have revolved twice.

Astronomy for the win!

------

My intuition, which is usually pretty good, tells me that there will be more wine in the water glass than there is water in the wine glass. Now, I just need to prove that they are in fact the same :). [I will assume that the solutions are well-mixed]

Without loss of generality, assume that each glass has 4 teaspoons of liquid. By moving one teaspoon of wine into the water glass, we now have a solution of 4 parts water and 1 part wine in the water glass (or it's 80% water, 20% wine). This means that when we scoop up a teaspoon of liquid from the newly mixed water glass, it will contain 1/5 of a teaspoon of wine and 4/5 a teaspoon of water. Dropping this into the wine mixture, we can clearly see that we are left with 4/5 of a teaspoon of wine in the water glass and 4/5 water in the wine glass. Hence, they are equal.

On the way to the room the bellboy reasons that $5 would be difficult to share among three people so he pockets $2 and gives $1 to each person. Now each person paid $10 and got back $1. So they paid $9 each, totalling $27. The bellboy has $2, totalling $29. Where is the missing $1?

Edit: I swear I got it before you posted. It took at least 1 minute to make it in paint.

I wasn't sure if we could rotate them or not, that would have made my life worlds easier. I should have just asked. :p

Oh, sorry, I should probably have made that clearer V.V

Since this is a puzzle thread, I figure I should make my contribution of puzzles. This is a collection called Puzzle Maniak, a set of *.exe files that contain 27 different types of puzzles, all of which are randomly generated and can be tweaked to increase or decrease the difficulty. I think they are a great way to keep your mind in shape, and some of them can actually become quite addicting, and you might find yourself constantly trying to beat your fastest scores. My favorites are 25-point Untangle, 20x20 Unreasonable Galaxies, and any variation of Lightup. I've put all of the executables in a zip file and uploaded them to Mediafire. There aren't any instructions, but rules can be found here (http://www.puzzlemaniak.com/main/?cat=8). Here is the link (http://www.mediafire.com/?jzytjyoawm1), if you have any questions, ask me and I'll hopefully be able to help you out. :)

Move the second I on the bottom row to horizontally above the first one. The V becomes the start of the root symbol, extending over the first I, which is now the 1.

1/root(1)=1

I tried that, but I got an answer of -1, so it is wrong ;)

Haha, that's one way of doing it ;)

Here's another:

You are in a completely sealed room, with sealed ceiling, floor, and four walls that form an impenetrable sealed surface. No windows, doors, openings, changes in the walls etc that open in any way onto the outside. The only thing in the room is a wooden table. How do you escape?

Gah, if there was a mirror in the room too I would have had this one!!!

...Seriously...

You sit on the table and meditate, therefore escaping mentally...?

Nope, aaaand nope.

Here's a hint. Perhaps you'll need to obtain a saw...somehow. From nothing.

But you said that changes to the walls wouldn't lead to the outside. How would a saw help?

I got it

You see the table, you see what you saw, you take that saw, you cut the table in half, two halves make a hole, you climb out of the hole

Good answer! If that's the right answer, however, I'll feel the need to slap Dawbes good and proper! ;)

I've heard that answer before, I don't particularly like this riddle though, because to me it seems that you would have actually had to have heard it somewhere before to figure it out. I've figured out some pretty tough riddles, but I can't see myself getting that one in a million years. "See what you saw", really?

More importantly how did I get into that room in the first place?

And what about the air supply?

:p

Actually the "see what you saw" is new to me. And it's not like the riddle is particuarly obtuse, it's just a play on phonetics. I personally wouldn't have got it without knowing it before but my brain doesn't work like that. Some peoples' brains do.


And what about the air supply?
Why do you think you are trying to get out? ;)

Is there light in the room? Because if there isn't I can't see the mirror, thus I can't see the saw that I saw when I had seen the table.

Edit: There was no mirror in the room, stupid.
Edit: But I still can't see anything.

So, was the 'see that you saw' the right answer? We're going from the sublime to the ridiculous! :confused:

That's the answer I've always known for that puzzle, or there abouts.
