It’s our final puzzle…..
A millionaire tells his two sons to buy two horses and ride to a town 5 miles away. The one whose horse is slower wins and will inherit his fortune. After thinking about the race for days, the brothers ask a wise man for guidance. Upon receiving the advice, they jump on their horses and race to the town as fast as they can.
What did the wise man say to them?
Yesterday I posted this puzzle….
What phrases are represented here….
2 mothers and 2 daughters go out for lunch. They order 6 slices of pizza and can share the slices equally between them.
If you haven’t tried to solve it, have a go now. For everyone else, the answer is below….
If the group consists of a grandmother and her daughter and her granddaughter, then the 3 of them would constitute 2 mothers and 2 daughters. Thus the 6 pieces can be evenly shared between the 3 of them.
I hope you enjoyed the 10 puzzles. Stay safe and I hope to see you soon. Oh, and if you need the answer to the horse puzzle, here it is…..
The wise man told them to swap horses. Given that the money will go to the slower horse, by swapping horses each son will try to get to the town first, thus creating a proper race.
