Puzzle 3
Three people check into a hotel.
They pay £30 to the manager and go to their room.
The manager suddenly remembers that the room rate is £25 and gives £5 to the porter to return to the people.
On the way to the room the porter reasons that £5 would be difficult to share among three people so they keep £2 and give £1 to each person.
Now each person paid £10 and got back £1.
So they paid £9 each, totalling £27. The porter has £2, totalling £29.
Where is the missing £1?
[Ref: ZVTU]
Hint: Be careful of what you're adding.
Answer:
We have to be careful what we are adding together.
Originally, they paid £30, they each received back £1, they now have only paid £27.
Of this £27, £25 went to the manager for the room and £2 went to the porter.
Puzzle 4
The BrainBashers safe has a rather unusual control panel.
In order to open the safe you have to press every single button once only, in the correct sequence, ending on the button marked E.
Each button clearly states which button to press next, for example, 2U means move up 2 buttons and 3R means move right 3 buttons.
Can you determine which button you must start with?
Answer: Start with the 3U on the 5th row down and the 6th column across.
