Random Riddler....
I know we used to have an archtype riddle game here but that isn't happening anymore.
Now that beastyboy (our stellarknight mod) wants some brain training I had the idea to just start a simple riddler.
It's simple:
1) I post a riddle here
2) you try to solve it and put answer AND how you did it in the replies
3) If there's a correct answer, I'll post a new riddle.
(you can always send me a riddle as suggestion)
so here we go with the next riddle:
You have a round cake that you want to devide in 8 pieces. Give me the least number of cuts you need to do that and explain how you have cut.
(2 possible correct ways to do it)
Good Luck

If 2 is company and 3 is a crowd, is simply there to toy with your mind, there is no normal saying for 4 & 5. that leaves it with having simply to do with math making the question what is 4 + 5, making the answer 9.

Re: Random Riddler....
In a certain way it's correct. It's because I ask what IS four and five.... meaning I expect one answer.... saying four and five IS nine...
if I said what ARE four and five, then I had expected things like four is "this" and five is "that".
well done Reess, a new riddle will be up soon

Re: Random Riddler....
There is no reason to add the 2 and 27, the 2 is already in the 27. Making the addition meaningless. Instead the 2 should be subtracted from the 27 to get their total of 25.
$30 (initial payment) = $25 (to clerk) + $2 (to bellhop) +$3 (refund)
all of it is already accounted for.

Correct again, the 2$ of the bellboy is already in the 27$ and should be subtracted instead of add. Making it 25$ what is the new price of the room.
Well done Reess.
a new riddle will be up soon.

This is a classic. You cannot add together the amount they paid plus the amount they owe in order to calculate how much they paid.Nukyur wrote:I know we used to have an archtype riddle game here but that isn't happening anymore.

3) If there's a correct answer, I'll post a new riddle.

so here we go with the next riddle:
3 guys enter a hotel and ask for a room.
the only room available costs 30$
Each man gives 10$, making it 30$ in total.
When the men went to their room, the manager remembers he had lowered the price to 25$
He gives 5$ to the elevator boy who has to give it to the men
In the elevator, the boy realizes you cant split 5$ into 3 parts.
So he gives each man 1$ and he keeps 2$
Now we are gonna calcutate back...
Each man has payed now 9$ (101) > 3 x 9$ = 27$
The elevator boy has kept 2$ > 27$ + 2$ = 29$
Where is that last dollar????
Good Luck
This is what you did, turned into pure math:
3 * 10 =30
305=25
52= 3
[Implicit step: 101=9; 101=9, 101=9]
3*9 = 27
27+2 = 29 [What???!]
You see you took away 2 and then you added back that two. That does not work out. If we retracked and took this in a different direction we can calculate they paid 30. They lost 5 dollars; making it 25 dollars. The boy gave them 3 dollars, and they have 28 dollars in total. [28+2=30 making it a perfect equation] There is no way they could "each pay 9 dollars".

Re: Random Riddler....
They have payed each 9 dollar. But the room was 25 dollar what had to be the goal. not the 30 that was started from.
it's like said earlier:
9x3 = 27
272 = 25 (the price of the room)
anyhow, a new riddle is up

Re: Random Riddler....
Again, Reessiel was the first one to have it correct.
With this riddle I think the answer explains it for when you read the riddle again it all comes clear.
will post a new riddle shortly

 Answer:
 cut it into quarters with 2 cuts, then stack all 4 pieces and cut it in half leaving you with 8 pieces made in a grand total of 3 cuts.

Damn Rees, give others a chance, but that's indeed one way to do it... I'll leave this up for others to get the second way...
