How can it be a truthful statement if it has not occured?

but he could say the hell you are and then you get nothing.


He could do a lot of things, there are not enough parameters on the puzzle. Therefore logic is flawed as no logic exists.

How about; Give me (using the imperitive) the coin of gold or I will put my musket twixt your eyes. This negates the negative reasoning and assures the gold coin. I have it on some authority this reasoning was quite successful during the 17th and 18th centuries, following later into the 19th. 20th, and some reports as to its use even today.

Coins - Back to the Logic Problems
Imagine there are 3 coins on the table. Gold, silver and copper. If you say a truthful sentence, you will get one coin. If you say a false sentence, you get nothing. Which sentence can guarantee gaining the gold coin?


Spoiler for Solution



Once again, statements predicting future behavior of others are neither truth nor lie. This solution fails.

Everyone knows the value of the US Dollar is going down - the only thing that keeps its value is metals - In the early 1900's and ounce of Gold bought a real nice suit - Gold then was around $20 an ounce. Today that same Ounce of Gold Will buy a real nice suit but that $20 would maybe get you a nice tie.

To fight off inflation everyone should be purchasing Gold and Silver in some form - Gold Coins - Silver Coins or bullion / bars

i would say "You're not going to give me all the coins." I'm not sure if that would work.


yeah or just say "1+1=2"




you could do that, but it just says you get A coin. It doesn't guarantee the Gold coin. think about it.

Frozen: You have to assume that everything that the problem states is true actually is true.

From that, assume you do in fact say "you will give me neither the silver nor the copper coin." If you are not given any coins, then what you said is true; getting nothing means you didn't get silver and you didn't get copper. But the problem says that if you say a true statement, you will be given one of the coins. So it can't be the case that you weren't given any coins, because it produces a contradiction.

ans: they are three coins on the table. it can be any sentence, once its the truth, do i get a coin?
