## Find Those Missing Numbers Riddle

In the attached figure, you can find two missing numbers. Can you analyze the pattern and find those missing numbers?

Hint:

The number missing on the left is 8 and the one on right is 7.

Explanation:

The pattern:

The number in the center of triangle is the square root of the sum of the numbers sitting outside on the corners.

Thus,

10 + 22 + 4 = 36

Square Root of 36 = 6

In the same manner:

10 + 42 + 12 = 64

Square Root of 64 = 8

12 + 22 + 15 = 49

Square Root of 49 = 7

YES NO

Explanation:

The pattern:

The number in the center of triangle is the square root of the sum of the numbers sitting outside on the corners.

Thus,

10 + 22 + 4 = 36

Square Root of 36 = 6

In the same manner:

10 + 42 + 12 = 64

Square Root of 64 = 8

12 + 22 + 15 = 49

Square Root of 49 = 7

## Pick A Card Any Card

Hint:

5 of clubs.

Explanation:

The 5th number is equal to the sum of first four number (recursively until its value <=13). The suit will be same as of biggest card.

eg Row1:

5 + 7 + 3 + 11 = 26 = 8

Since Maximum value is Jack of hearts, therefore, we will get 8 of hearts

Similarly for the last row

12+13+2+5 = 32 = 5

Since Maximum value is King of a club, therefore, we will get 5 of a club.

YES NO

## Count The Number Of Circles Riddle

Hint:

## Shoe Man Whistle

Hint:

The third equation has a term with a pair of whistles. The last line involves a single whistle.

Furthermore, the man in the second and third lines are wearing a whistle, but the man in the last line is not wearing a whistle. Presumably the value of the whistle should be accounted for to get the correct answer.

The pictures can be translated into the following equations:

shoes + shoes + shoes = 30

shoes + (man + whistle) + (man + whistle) = 20

(man + whistle) + 2(whistles) + 2(whistles) = 13

shoes + (man) x (whistle) = ?

From the first equation we can solve for the shoes value:

shoes + shoes + shoes = 30

3(shoes) = 30

shoes = 10

We can then solve the second equation for the (man + whistle) value:

shoes + (man + whistle) + (man + whistle) = 20

10 + 2(man + whistle) = 20

2(man + whistle) = 10

man + whistle = 5

Then we solve the third equation for the whistle:

(man + whistle) + 2(whistles) + 2(whistles) = 13

5 + 4(whistles) = 13

4(whistles) = 8

whistle = 2

We also need to solve for the value of the man:

man + whistle = 5

man + 2 = 5

man = 3

Now we can evaluate the final expression, remembering the order of operations that multiplication should be evaluated before addition:

shoes + (man) x (whistle) = ?

10 + 3 x 2

= 10 + 3 x 2

= 10 + 6

= 16

YES NO

3(shoes) = 30

shoes = 10

10 + 2(man + whistle) = 20

2(man + whistle) = 10

man + whistle = 5

(man + whistle) + 2(whistles) + 2(whistles) = 13

5 + 4(whistles) = 13

4(whistles) = 8

whistle = 2

## Banana Clock Riddle

Hint: 1. Look closely at the clock.
2. Number of Bananas.
3. Some thing regarding the sides of the Shapes figure.

38

Logic :

From 1st the hexagon shape has value 15.

The shape has 15 edges(6 of hexagon,5 of Pentagon and 4 of Square)

From 2nd we get value of one bunch of bananas is 4.

So each banana has value of 1.

From 3rd we get that each clock has value of 3.

Which resembles the time on the clock which is 3.

Hence by using these insights, we get the last required values as

Clock = 2 (2 in the clock)

Bananas = 3 (3 bananas in the bunch)

Hexagon = 11 (Hexagon[6 sides] and pentagon[5 sides], so 6+5=11)

So required value is

2+3+3x11=?

2+3+33=? (Multiply first - Bodmas rule)

5+33=38 and hence the answer is 38.

YES NO

## How Many Triangles Are There?

Hint: Don't forget to count the outside :)

## Sand Net Bikini Riddle

Hint:

## The Ball Pyramid Riddle

Hint:

30

Explanation:

It's very difficult to count an actual number of balls but it can be counted mathematically as illustrated below.

Balls in lowest level most level, say level 1 : 4 * 4 = 16

Level2 => 3 * 3 = 9

Level3 => 2 * 2 = 4

Leve4 => 1

Summing up 16+9+4+1 = 30.

YES NO
