## 100 Floors Riddle

There was a building with 100 floors. A short man lived on the very top floor, the 100th floor. On sunny days, he would ride the elevator up to the 70th floor, then climb the stairs up the rest of the way. On rainy days, he would ride the elevator straight to his apartment, the 100th floor. Why?

Hint:

He is short, so he can't reach the 100th floor button. On rainy days, he can use his umbrella to poke the button.

YES NO

## 100 Blank Cards Riddle

Someone offers you the following deal:

There is a deck of 100 initially blank cards. The dealer is allowed to write ANY positive integer, one per card, leaving none blank. You are then asked to turn over as many cards as you wish. If the last card you turn over is the highest in the deck, you win; otherwise, you lose.

Winning grants you $50, and losing costs you only the $10 you paid to play.

Would you accept this challenge?

Winning grants you $50, and losing costs you only the $10 you paid to play.

Would you accept this challenge?

Hint: Perhaps thinking in terms of one deck is the wrong approach.

Yes!

A sample strategy:

Divide the deck in half and turn over all lower 50 cards, setting aside the highest number you find. Then turn over the other 50 cards, one by one, until you reach a number that is higher than the card you set aside: this is your chosen "high card."

Now, there is a 50% chance that the highest card is contained in the top 50 cards (it is or it isn't), and a 50% chance that the second-highest card is contained in the lower 50. Combining the probabilities, you have a 25% chance of constructing the above situation (in which you win every time).

This means that you'll lose three out of four games, but for every four games played, you pay $40 while you win one game and $50. Your net profit every four games is $10.

Obviously, you have to have at least $40 to start in order to apply this strategy effectively.

## Pick A Room Riddle

It is Halloween and your friends dare you to go into a haunted house. You creep up to the door, a little scared wondering what is behind the door. You go in and there is a long hallway leading out into a dark musty room with three doors.

You're kind of scared once you are inside. You try to turn back, to get back outside, but when you turn around the door is closed and locked. You yell for help but there is only silence. The room is dark and you look for a light source. You see a light switch and try to turn it on. Sadly the power is out. You are terrified but have no choice but to follow the long hallway to the three doors in the pitch black.

Behind one door is a bottomless pit with no end. Behind another door is an electric chair which you must sit in. Behind the last door is a pool full of acid. You must go in one of the rooms to the danger. Which one should you go through?

Hint:

You should definitely go through the electric chair. Since the power is out, when you sit in the electric chair it will have no effect on you.
