but only 1 coconut half, not 2.
>>
>>675614594
>>675614754

from the first equation we see each apple is 10
the second equation we find that each bundle of FOUR bananas is 4, therefore each banana is worth ONE
the third equation we find that TWO coconuts is 2, and therefore one coconut would only be worth ONE
in the final equation there is only ONE coconut (1) plus one apple (10) plus THREE bananas (3)
1 + 10 + 3 = 14

Full up 3 gallon one twice. Pour into 5 gallon one twice. The second time the 5 gallon one will be full at some point, stop then and what's left in the 3 gallon jug is 'exactly' 1 gallon.
>>
>>675615424
fill both halfway
so the 3 gal jug will have 1.5 gallons and the 5 gal jug will have 2.5
dump the 1.5 from 3 gal jug into the 5 gal jug
now the 5 gal jug will have 4 gallons
take the 5 gal jug and fill the 3 gal jug all the way full
now the 5 gal jug will only have one gallon left in it

Weigh 3 and 3. If equal, take remaining 2 and weigh. If there's a difference, weigh 1 and 1 from the heavier group. If same, the heavier is the 3rd one.

The store room of your house is locked with a certain lock that can be closed without a key but requires a key to open which you own (there is no duplicate key). You decide to move your old stuff in the storeroom. After keeping the things carefully, you lock it back again perfectly. The next day, a dead body is found in your closed store room. Since only you have the key to the store room and you live alone, the police suspects you as a murderer. You can’t understand anything when suddenly a thought strikes your mind. There is a possible way using which the dead body could have been placed by someone else.

Can you find that way so you can tell the police and prove yourself to be innocent?

take two of the heavier side and measure
if (one side is heavier) {
this is the poisoned one

it is the last one of the three, which was not measured

measure the ones you put aside

>>675616004
Pick two groups of 3. Weigh them against each other. If they are equal, then the odd pill is in the two that you didn't weigh in the two groups of 3, and you can just compare them with your second weighing.

If one group of 3 is heavier than the other, pick two pills from that group and compare them on the scale. If they're the same, the pill you didn't weigh is the heavy one. If one is heavier than the other, it's the heavier one. \qed

Once upon a time a farmer went to a market and purchased a terrorist, a belgian, and a bag of brussels sprouts. On his way home, the farmer came to the bank of a river and rented a boat. But in crossing the river by boat, the farmer could carry only himself and a single one of his purchases—the terrorist, the belgian, or the bag of brussels sprouts.

If left together, the terrorist would blow the begian up, or the belgian would eat the brussels sprouts.

The farmer's challenge was to carry himself and his purchases to the far bank of the river, leaving each purchase intact. How did he do it?

My hat has to be black.

Albert didn't know what color his hat was. Since there are only two white hats, that means that Albert and I are either both wearing black, or wearing a black and a white, because if Albert saw two white, he would know his is black.

Barry understands this, so if he saw that my hat was white, he would know his had to be black, or else Albert would know his own color.

Therefore, both Barry and I must be wearing black hats.
>>
>>675616990
Black. To be uncertain, Albert has to see at least one black hat in front of him. If he says he doesn't know, Barry knows that if you wear a white hat, he must have black one. Since he doesn't know either, that means you must be wearing a black hat.
>>
>>675616990
This one took me a while

If Albert saw 2 white hats he would have known his own was black. But he didn't. So he either saw 2 blacks or 1 white and 1 black

If Barry saw me wearing a white hat he would've known his was not white and therefore knew his was black.

For that reason, mine must be black.

Well then.
Albert knows month. He says he doesn't know which is pretty obvious because any month he was told, has multiple days. But he also knows that Bernie doesn't know, because every day in that month is also in some other month. Because of that, it cannot be May or June. There are May 19 and June 18. Thus Albert could not be certain if Bernard didn't have exactly one of those dates. Now. Bernard sayd he really didn't know, but knows already based on Albert. That means he also excluded May and June and was left with only July and Auguts. And because he know now, it's obvious it ain't 14th. That way he wouldn't know. So he's left with July 16, August 15 and August 17. And finally Albert says he knows now. Thus he knows it's July because August has still 2 days. And voila, it's July 16.

A = apples
B = bananas
C = coconuts

A + A + A = 30
implies A = 10

A + B + B = 18
substitute A = 10 and get B = 4

B - C = 2
substitute B = 4 and get C = 2

C + A + B = 2 + 10 + 4 =16

I presume there's a tank of milk somewhere...

fill 3 gallon jug
pour all from 3 gallon jug into 5 gallon jug (now has 3 gallons)
fill 3 gallon jug again
pour from 3 gallon jug until 5 gallon jug is full ( 3 + 2 )

3 gallon jug has exactly 1 gallon left.
