Puzzle IconDuring a recent BrainBashers thinking contest, the total number of points scored by the first six players was 103 and every score was above zero.

The first player scored half the points of the second player, who in turn scored 6 points fewer than the third player.

The third player in turn scored two thirds the points of the fourth player.

The fifth player managed to score the same number of points as the difference between the first and fourth player's points.

Finally, the sixth player scored 14 fewer than the fifth player.

Can you determine how many points the sixth player managed to score?

Puzzle IconThree 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?
