    There are a few more options that those given yet. Remember that any combination of six 2's, five 3's, one 5, and any number of 1's you need is valid.

    Seems there are a lot of possible solutions. An interesting twist to this would be to state that, as each of the letters A-H are different, this implies that the the operators they represent must also be different. Now what do we get?

    Topic starters can mark their new threads as solved if solution is posted. Follow these guidelines.
    Riddle/Puzzle authors (or generally topic starters) may choose to show that their riddle/puzzle has been solved by changing it from a regular thread into a poll.
    1. After an acceptable solution has been posted, the topic starter posts a reply to confirm that the answer is correct (giving credits to solver/solvers, pointing to their posts and providing further explanation if needed). Before adding reply, the topic starter can first copy the hyperlink address - URL - to the post with the correct answer by clicking its number in the upper right corner of the post (eg. clicking on "#2" if that post includes the solution).
    2. When topic starter is writing reply ("Add reply"), he/she can click the option at the top of the editor: "Click here to manage this topic’s poll".
    3. The poll does not need to have a title, but the topic starter will need to click "Add Poll Question" and type something in the box "Poll Content" (eg. "Solved").
    4. Topic starter then needs to click "Add Poll Choice" and type something in the box that appears (like "Solved by plasmid in post #23" - tags can be used to point directly to the post with solution.) You can get a hyperlink address - URL - to the post with the correct answer by clicking its number in the upper right corner. You might want to copy the URL before you "Add Reply" so that you just paste it in this step. Then use that hyperlink in url tags like so:
    {url=http://brainden.com/forum/index.php?s=&showtopic=9215&view=findpost&p=178754}this post{/url} ... replace {} for []
    5. Topic starter needs to enter the regular text for a reply posting as well.
    6. Click the button "Add Reply" in the full editor and that's it

    Ok, Now that I've got the problem correctly figured (shame on you phillip1882 for not stating the problem correctly the first time), here's another one for you. Given the 58 candles from the 50 lbs of beeswax, how much beeswax is left over?

    You're getting there, but you can only ask a question for which the answer is "Yes" or "No"

    You pick one girl A and point to another girl B and ask her "Will she tell me the truth?" If A is the liar and B is the truth teller, then A will answer "No". If A is the truth teller and B is the liar then A will answer "No". If A is the whimsical girl then she will answer either "Yes" or "No". In any case if you get a definite answer, you choose girl B.

    The kicker comes when B is the whimsical girl. If that is the case, then A cannot know whether to lie or tell the truth and therefore cannot answer the question. If that is the case then you know B is the whimsical girl and you should choose A.
