#338925 Amount of air in a glass

Posted by wolfgang on 06 July 2014 - 01:32 PM

If we have an emty cylindrical  glass  on a flat table with a dice inside it , naturally, it will contain an amount of air inside it.

Now , if we invert this glass upside down on the table, leaving the dice still inside it but landing on the table , will the amount of air inside the glass changes?

If yes, would it be more or less, and why?

If no...why?

#331974 Weighing problem again...

Posted by wolfgang on 11 May 2013 - 04:30 PM

You have 8 coins that all look  exactly the same, two of them are fake,one of these two fake coins is 0.1gm more than a normal coin, whereas the second coin is 0.1 gm less than a normal coin.

 With howmany weighings can you find them out  using a balance scale?

#323306 Nice puzzle !

Posted by wolfgang on 27 July 2012 - 09:20 PM

Hi my friends...I`ve prepared a nice puzzle to you..
Here we go:-
Cut 9 pieces of paper,write a number on each one of them,from 1 to 9,put them in a pot,put the pot on a table.
Your aim is to arrenge these numbers on the table in this order: 123456789
according to the following rules:
1- you can choose any number to be the first number, and put it on the table.( for example I choose number 4).
2-take a second number and compare it with the number on the table, if.. 2nd>1st....put it to the left.
if 2nd<1st...put it to the right.( in my example, if I choose 7...I`ll get 74.....but if I choose 3.....will be 43).
3-now whenever you have an even amount of numbers on the table( two numbers,4,6,or 8), you should insert any number you want
between them,just in the middle.(in my example, if I want to choose 5,so I should put it in the middle to get 754,,,or 453).
4- you are allowed to take any number from the table and put it back in your pot. but to put any number again on the table,you should follow the rules.
5-to put the 4th number, you should compare it with the middle number( in my example...with number 5), if the choosen number>than
the middle number....put it to the left, if the choosen number < than the middle number...put it to the right.(in my example, if I choose
number 9,,so 9>5...I`ll get 9754,,,or 9453).
6-as in step 3.
7-whenever you have an odd amount of numbers on the table(one number,3,5,7,or 9),you should compare your choosen number with
the middle number, if your choosen number>the middle number....put it to the left.
if your choosen number<than the middle number.....put it to the right.

Have a nice time :)

I think it is very useful to add a small (paint) program ,either to edit new puzzles or to answer others.

#318855 Evidence of God's Design

Posted by wolfgang on 17 June 2012 - 11:37 AM

Hello...God bless you all
I believe in God for a very simple,uncomplicated reason,
If anyone asks me a very easy mathmatical question, e.g.(If the sum of 2 numbers is 17 ,and the difference between them is 1...what are the numbers?)
My brain will assume the first number to be (X) , simply, because I don`t know the answer, now....Is (X) a real number?....YES it is.
Does it exsist?...YES....and so on.
Old people saw all around,human,creatures,earth,stars.....without knowing where did they come from....so they assume that there is someone who creates all these things, they gave him the name(GOD) insted of (X)...So he is real and exsists.
