  • (#11) The 'Diehard' Water Jug Riddle

    Submitted by Facebook commenter Nick Olejnik:

    Riddle: You have a five-gallon jug and a three-gallon jug. How do you fill one of the jugs with exactly four gallons of water?

     

     

     

     

     

    Answer: 
     

    1. Fill the 5-gallon jug with water.
    2. Empty 3 gallons of the water into the 3-gallon jug, leaving 2 gallons in the 5-gallon jug.
    3. Pour out the 3-gallon jug completely, and then refill it with the remaining 2 gallons of water from the 5-gallon jug.
    4. Fill up the 5-gallon jug again.
    5. Empty a gallon of water from the 5-gallon jug into the 3-gallon jug. (This will fill the 3-gallon jug, as it already has 2 gallons of water in it.)
    6. The 5-gallon jug now has exactly 4 gallons of water.

  • (#16) A Riddle Of Words

    Submitted by Facebook commenter Dylan Butten:

    Riddle: What has four letters, sometimes has nine letters, but never has five letters.

     

     

     

     

     

    Answer: The riddle has no answer; it is a statement rather than a question - hence the lack of a question mark. “What” has four letters, “sometimes” has nine, and “never” has five.

  • (#6) The Hotel Room Split

    Submitted by Facebook commenter Mike Haney:

    Riddle: Three men go into a hotel. The man behind the desk says a room is $30, so each man pays $10 and goes to the room. A while later the man behind the desk realized the room was only $25 so he sent the bellboy to the room with $5. On the way the bellboy couldn't figure out how to split $5 evenly between 3 men, so he gave each man $1 and kept the other $2 for himself.

    This meant that the three men each paid $9 for the room, which is a total of $27. Add in the $2 that the bellboy kept = $29. Where is the other dollar?

     

     

     

     

     

    Answer: There is no missing dollar. According to a breakdown from Snopes:

    This particular item stumps a good many people because it contains a simple error which is often overlooked due to its deceptive wording. Tracking the money through the transactions referenced in the text reveals that no money has gone missing:

    1. The three men start out with $10 each ($10 x 3 = $30).

    2. The three men pay $30 for a hotel room. Afterward, a five dollar overcharge is returned to them ($25 + $5 = $30).

    3. The bellboy divides up the $5 overcharge, returning $1 to each of the three men (for a total of $3) and keeping $2 for himself ($25 + $3 + $2 = $30).

    Where did the missing dollar go? Nowhere. A dollar only goes “missing” because the statement “each man paid $9 for the room” is wrong: each of the men paid out a total of $9, but that $9 included both the room charge and the bellboy’s tip. All in all, each man paid out a total of $9 and had $1 left over, completely accounting for the $30 they started with.

    The room cost $25, so each man paid a third of that cost ($8.33). The bellboy kept a tip of $2, so each man paid a third of that cost ($0.67) as well. Overall, each man paid out $9 ($8.33 + $0.67) for the room and bellboy tip and had a dollar left over: (3 x $9) + (3 x $1) = $27 + $3 = $30.
