actually i a may be wrong cos of the difference between a-e n a-d, oh well the egg "is heel lekker"!


"F is as much less than B as C is greater than D." doesn't hold in your sequence as well

Spoiler for My Answer


Your sequence seems ok, but the difference between 'A' and 'D' doesn't make two times the difference between 'E' and 'A'. (I mean in your case, it is '-2' times)

The difference between A and D is the same as two times the difference between E and A.

E F G B D C A

this works, but so does

F G D B C A E

or
F D E B C G A

etc.

fogot the E's, more options can happen


In order to have a unique solution, I have changed the puzzle in the second thread (b/c the ten min time slice expired!)

Have a look at my updated puzzle (thread-2).

The letters A, B, C, D, E, F and G, not necessarily in that order, represents seven consecutive numbers.
* F is as much less than B as C is greater than D.
* G is greater than F.
* B is the middle term.
* A is 3 greater than D.
What is the sequence of letters from the lowest value to the highest value?

E F G B D C A
this works, but so does
F G D B C A E
or
F D E B C G A
etc.


Actually, none of your solutions are correct. The first two do not fulfill the first requirement, and the third one fails to satisfy the fourth rule.
