  1. can I ask a silly question? Do we get the same answer, if we change the three rooms and apples with three positive numbers written on three papers?
  2. Hi dear friends... 1- Draw an equilateral triangle ABC. 2- Make two points on each side to get (ABC+6point= 9 points), with 4 points on each side. 3- Give the numbers( 1 to 9 ) to these points, so that the sum of 4 numbers on each side is the same. i.e. A+point1+point2+B= B+point3+point4+C= C+point5+point6+A have fun
  3. What if the 1st person is left handed and he is B? for the 1st question, he can not raise his right hand because he is not A, neither to raise his left hand which means (yes),and that is not true. There is no contradiction here. If first person is left handed and he is B, he has to answer the question 'will I raise my right hand for the question "are you A?"?'. Answer is 'Yes, right hand will be raised if the question was "Are you A"'.. Since B is left handed, he will finally raise his left hand to signify "Yes". I think my approach is essentially the same. nice trial... but take
  4. I read it.... but it is not correct... because in this case ,for the 3rd question, the 1st person may be A,,, or may not...hmmm...then what?
  5. What if the 1st person is left handed and he is B? for the 1st question, he can not raise his right hand because he is not A, neither to raise his left hand which means (yes),and that is not true.
  6. The solution I propose is based on a certain question configuration: "Will you raise your right hand on the question: (yes/no question)?" A positive response in this case - the right hand raising , the negative - left and no matter to whom you addressed the question. All the rest is not difficult. now you know one of them,as right handed... what about the two others? and how to confirm their identity?
  7. I want their identity. and the letters are instead of names. so I want to know who is A, who is B, and who is C
  8. Three persons( A,B,and C) are not allowed to speak,but to raise a hand refering to ( Yes or No ), you don`t know which hand means Yes,and which means No. How can you know the persons which is which by asking only three( yes or no) questions. You may ask one ,two or all of them...as you like. any question should be asked to a single person.
  9. I didn`t play Kenken before, so may I ask about it... 1- if it is like sudoku, does it mean that each row or column should have the numbers from 1 to 8? 2- in 1st row, there is a single box having number 5, and in 5th row a single box having number 3...shall we put them as such? 3- in case of 3 boxes, is it possible to subtract three numbers?..e.g. 8-5-1
  10. but these are 9 digits and not 8 , so you should devide the number by 9.
  11. Very close, wolfgang, but check out the first eight digits. I did...and I didn`t find any mistake...
  12. I think that " amabat hulut a sese sokol " means ( the basic sound of pure water ).
