Did you get more than me? in New Logic/Math Puzzles Posted August 4, 2017 · Edited August 4, 2017 by Pickett Misread original post. · Report reply Spoiler B and C each have 1 piece...D has X pieces (where X>1), and A has 11-X pieces. Let's walk through this: We are starting with the assumption that everyone got at least one piece When A asked B if he had more and B said "no", the only way he could know that is if B only received one piece...Because with that, there is no way he could've had more than A...he could have had the SAME, but not MORE. So then B asked C the same, and the same logic applies. So B and C each had 1 piece. At this point we know B and C each had 1 piece, which means there are 11 pieces unaccounted for. D knows all of this information because of what he just heard, and as long as he has 2 or more, he knows he has more than C...and he would know exactly how many because A would have (11-D), which is why he can say his statement. If our original assumption is incorrect, and people were allowed to have 0, then B and C both had 0 as CaptainEd mentioned...although D would have at least 1, not 0, and A would have the rest.
