    Ages of brothers

    Two of the ages of three brothers together equal the third age. Some years later, the sum of two of the three ages is double the remaining age. One of the brothers is coming to age today. The number of years since the first occasion is currently two-thirds of the sum of their ages at the time of the first occurrence. What ages do the other two brothers have today?

    shuffling algorithm for letters in a word

    It looks like you're taking the first letter and essentially rotating it through the different positions while the other letters remain in the same order. I noticed that all the possible permutations begin with two letters that were next to each other in the original sequence (or in the first and last spot). For example, I don't think you can get a sequence starting with AC. So this does not seem to hold up.
  14. If there is a word , then will swapping 2 adjacent letters at the beginning of string will give me a new word (not necessarily a meaningful word) and then swapping the next 2 letters will give me a new word. After switching the last 2 letters , we go back to the beginning of the word and continue. example: If the word is ABCCD , it becomes BACCD , then BCACD , BCCAD, BCCDA, then CBCDA and so on .. Ignoring the swapping of the same two letters (like BCCDA) , will this algorithm give me all the words of all permutations ? I Tried for few number of letters and it works , but I want to know how to prove for any no. of letters. I have no idea how to prove it , it seems to work . By the way ,it is not a puzzle .

    Nice solve Wilson. I had nothing for this one for days. Half convinced myself there was not enough info to solve and finally peaked at your answer. Should never have doubted the master Mister 'puddn. Most excellent. I salute you sirs.

    A Handy Riddle

    A cup overhead, bells at my feet A hand for my job, I’m active and fleet. Whistles and bells, above and below Ladder to ladder, I go with the flow.
  25. A physicist, a biologist, and a mathematician are sitting on a bench across from a house. They watch as two people go into the house, and then a little later, three people walk out. The physicist says, "The initial measurement was incorrect." The biologist says, "They must have reproduced." And the mathematician says, "If exactly one person enters that house, it will be empty."
  26. Heisenberg, Gödel and Chomsky walk into a bar. Heisenberg notes, “We seem to have stumbled into a joke. But I can't tell whether it's funny.” Gödel points out, “Since we are currently inside the joke, it is impossible to tell.” Chomsky says, “Quite clearly it's funny. You are just telling it wrong!”

  28. I wanted to add to this dicussion that I almost solved the discussion on life: first: - there is infinite space (there must be somtehing next to our supossed solar systems, as it would be a strange situation if there would be nothing) - there is infite smallness (as it would be strange if smallness stops suddenly) Therefore the hugeness and smallness are both infinite and might just be a sort of continuum. This means that smallness is hugeness in some way (we just cannot imagine yet). The consequence is that life is just there in this continuum and you better make the most of it.

    Hello Everyone, Everyone loves What Am I Riddles. I certainly do. I thought I would have some fun, and post a few. Here are some I have found. Which I believe you have not heard before. Riddle 1: My Colours are pretty, rarely seen. Closer you get, more unseen. What Am I? Riddle 2: I have the squawk factor, name similar to a Hollywood actor, Seas and beaches are my thing, stealing food, then live like kings! What Am I? Riddle 3: I bring objects closer together, but can also push them apart. Can also be confused for attraction of the hearts. What Am I?
