# Guess the Rule

## Recommended Posts

Below is a venn diagram. Guess the proper location of a single object. If you are correct, I will update the venn diagram to show you the correct placement. The first one to guess the correct rule for all three circles is the winner!!

Warning, you may only guess at the rule once! But you may guess the individual placement of the objects as many times as you want.

Ummmmmmm let's put the red hexagon with 3 horizontal lines in spot number 8.

Like that?

exactly. Unfortunately it doesn't go there though. So keep guessing.

There are 30 combinations of size/shape/color/lines, but only 8 spots. Are the ones that go in places 1 through 8 the only ones that can go in those spots? ie is the one for spot 8 the only one that does not fit any of the 3 rules? And is the one that goes in spot 1 the only one that fits rule 1 while not fitting either rule 2 or 3? So no spot has more than 1 from the list of 30 that will fit there?

More than 1 item can fit the same circle. For example If circle 1 was "big shapes" and circle 2 was star shapes and circle 3 was gray shapes then a shape that has all three characteristics will go in space 5. But a shape that is big and not with star or gray would only go in space 2.

Your job is to define the three circles.

All shapes go in a place including #8 (which means a shape does not following any of the rules)

The rules of the circles are already set but not disclosed to you all. Based upon your guesses, right or wrong, you should be able to figure out which shapes go where. So far we know that the red hexagon with stripes has a feature (fits a rule) of at least 1 of the three circles. and to be clear more than one shape can go in the same space if they fit the same rule.

I just realized that all 30 must fit somewhere.

Do all 8 spots have at least 1 that fits there?

##### Share on other sites

yes. all spots will have at least 1 item.

let's try red hexagon with 3 horizontal lines in spot number 5

Big blue circle with no lines in spot 8.

##### Share on other sites

red circle with no lines in spot 1

##### Share on other sites

red hexagon with no lines in spot 4.

and the three rules to come afterwards.

##### Share on other sites

Circle 1 rule is it must be red

Circle 2 rule is it must be hexagon

Circle 3 rule is it must have 3 lines

Congratulations nana77 !!!!

Game went faster than i thought, lol.

NEW GAME:

The lucky guess for 5 made it straight forward.

and I am off for now, maybe someone else can start guessing

Nope.
