I have selected a few brain teasers at random for the most part that I found at least mildly amusing and that I could not immediately find in this sub-forum. I wouldn't say that any of them are very hard, but some require sideways thinking and I think that makes them fun to do. It is almost guaranteed that there will be a couple of problems that have been posted before, so just don't do those ones if you recognize them, and if you link to the original post containing that puzzle I will remove it from my thread so that we can make sure that these are all new. 1. How many cigars can a homeless man make from twenty five cigar butts if he needs five butts to make one cigar. 2.A Middle Eastern man died, leaving 17 of his camels. His will specified that they be divided among his three sons as follows: -1/2 to the oldest son -1/3 to the second son -1/9 to the youngest son The three sons were puzzling over how this could be done when a wise man happened to ride by on a camel. How did the wise man solve their provlem? 3.Supply a digit for each letter so that the equation is correct. A given letter always represents the same digit(The answer is not that all letters=0): ABCDE .....x4 ------ EDCBA 4.A woman goes into a hardware store to buy something for her house. She asks the clerk the price, and the clerk replies, "The price of one is twelve cents, the price of thirty is 24 cents, and the price of a hundred and forty-four is 36 cents." What does the woman want to buy? 5.What is the next letter in this sequence? O T T F F S S 6. If a plane crashes directly on the line between two states, where are the survivors buried (Had to post this one, I remember it from grade school) Have fun! Make sure to put answers in a "" tag.
