0 Guest Posted March 6, 2008 Report Share Posted March 6, 2008 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.

0 Guest Posted March 6, 2008 Report Share Posted March 6, 2008 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 Clarification ... sorry guys, the 10 min. time slice has expired.

"F is as much less than B as C is greater than D." doesn't hold in your sequence as well Quote Link to post Share on other sites

0 Guest Posted March 7, 2008 Report Share Posted March 7, 2008 FGDBECA 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. Quote Link to post Share on other sites

0 Guest Posted March 12, 2008 Report Share Posted March 12, 2008 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? E F G B D C A this works, but so does F G D B C A E or F D E B C G A etc. 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. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
