    9 being the correct answer of course o_O
    The order = Parentheses, Multiplication, Division, Addition and Subtraction.
    if you add 1 to 2 getting three and then multiply 3 by 2 because “multiplication comes after parentheses and before division.” That is wrong though because multiplication and division are at the same level of order so the steps become left to right ;)

    [​IMG] #12. YES or NO?
    If the question you answered before you answered the question you answered after you answered the question you answered, before you answered this one,

    was harder than the question you answered after you answered the question you answered before you answered this one,

    was the question you answered before you answered this one harder than this one?

    YES! :cool:

    [​IMG] #13. What's The Number?

    This number is increased by half it's value...

    Then the amount is increased by a third it's value...

    Then
    18 is added to that.

    The result is
    triple the original number.

    What's the original number?

    answer in about 24 :p

    The first sentence ask us to combine 'X' with half it's amount which is
    x + 1/2x

    The next sentence tells us to add a third of the above to it and then add 18 to it and the result is triple the original number.
    x + 1/2x + 1/3 (x + 1/2x) + 18= 3x

    3/2x + 1/3(3/2x) + 18= 3x

    3/2x + 1/2x + 18= 3x

    4/2x + 18= 3x

    18=x


    x stands for the 'original number' then the sentences translate into a mathematical equation.


    [​IMG] #14. Catch The Thief

    During a recent police investigation, Chief Inspector Stone was interviewing five local villains to try and identify who stole Mrs Archer's cake from the mid-summers fayre. Below is a summary of their statements:

    Arnold: it wasn't Edward
    it was Brian

    Brian: it wasn't Charles
    it wasn't Edward


    Charles: it was Edward
    it wasn't Arnold


    Derek: it was Charles
    it was Brian


    Edward: it was Derek
    it wasn't Arnold


    It was well known that each suspect told exactly one lie. Can you determine who stole the cake?

    Charles committed the terrible crime.

    Looking at Brian’s statements, one of the statements was a lie and the other was the truth. Therefore it must have been either Charles or Edward.

    Looking at Derek’s statements, for the same reason, it was either Charles or Brian.

    Therefore it must have been Charles who committed the crime. Double checking this against the other statements confirms this.

    Solving mathematical / logical tasks is a brain-developing activity, but not everyone can take up this activity because many of us are humanitarians who are not able to understand mathematical / logical tasks , and even more so many of us are not capable of solving mathematical tasks ! That is why people who do not have mental abilities to perform similar tasks should look for similar jobs as writers who work for the for the discussion essay writing service https://orderessay.net/discussion-essay.html and who have such duties as: writing discussion essays and writing other types of papers; editing discussion essays and editing other types of papers have !
