Question

Guest

The letters A, B, C, D, E, F and G, not necessarily in that order, represents seven consecutive numbers.

  • F is as much less than B as C is greater than D.

  • G is greater than F.

  • B is the middle term.

  • A is 3 greater than D.

What is the sequence of letters from the lowest value to the highest value?

Clarification ... sorry guys, the 10 min. time slice has expired. I later realized that the puzzle does not have a unique solution. So, I updated it here as follows.

The letters A, B, C, D, E, F and G, not necessarily in that order, represents seven consecutive numbers.

  • F is as much less than B as C is greater than D.

  • G is greater than F.

  • B is the middle term.

  • The difference between A and D is the same as two times the difference between E and A.

What is the sequence of letters from the lowest value to the highest value?

E F D B C A G

*edit* I had a suspicion my answer might not be the only solution. Working on the updated one now ...

My answer for the first puzzle was EFDBCAG (low to high)

I could not find other ones that fit all of the conditions. (unless F being as much less than B as C is greater than D means F can be greater than B and C less than D)

for new one: DFCBAGE

What is the sequence of letters from the lowest value to the highest value?

F G B D C A

this works, but so does

F D B C A G

or

F D B C G A

etc.

"F is as much less than B as C is greater than D." doesn't hold in your sequence as well

Your sequence seems ok, but the difference between 'A' and 'D' doesn't make two times the difference between 'E' and 'A'. (I mean in your case, it is '-2' times)

The difference between A and D is the same as two times the difference between E and A.

In order to have a unique solution, I have changed the puzzle in the second thread (b/c the ten min time slice expired!)

Have a look at my updated puzzle (thread-2).

Actually, none of your solutions are correct. The first two do not fulfill the first requirement, and the third one fails to satisfy the fourth rule.
