Its very good puzzle. It is simple but still its effective to confuse peple to scratch her heads.

Here is the puzzle:

We have total 100 rs and we need to buy exactly 100 birds. The prizelist for birds is as follow:

1) 1 parrot = 5 rs

2) 1 craw = 1 rs

3) 20 sparrows = 1 rs

But you have to follow these conditions

-> you have to spent all 100 rs.

-> you have to buy exact 100 birds

-> you have to buy all three birds. That mean you cant buy any specific kind of bird. So you must have all three kind of bird when you finish the buying!!!!

Lets hit it CEans!!!!

Here is another simple puzzle for you all CEans!!!

#-> We have a box full of coins & some notes of 10Rs. The box contains the 5Rs, 1Rs, 50Paisa, 25Paisa coins. After counting all the coins, I found the following results :

1-> The quantity of 1Rs coins is three times the quantity of 5Rs coins. That means that if we have 10 coins of 5Rs than we have 30 coins of 1Rs.

2-> Similarly, the quantity of 50Paisa coins is five times the quantity of 1Rs coins. That means that if we have 30 coins of 1Rs than we have 150 coins of 50Paisa.

3-> The quantity of 25Paisa coins is seven times the quantity of 50Paisa coins.

4-> The number of 10Rs notes is 16 + the number of 5Rs coins. That means if you have 4 coins of 5Rs than we have 20 notes of 10Rs.

5-> The total amount in box is exactly 4300Rs.

---> So how many coins & notes were there in the box?

If possible than give the method of your solution.

If it sleeps 1 feet in the sense if the effective is 2 feet it takes 25 jumps .

if the sentence means that the effective is 1 feet it takes 48 jumps.

23?

normally the frog can scale 48mts in 16 leaps

but since it misses 1 mt in each leap total no of mts scaled in 16 leaps is 48-16 = 33mts

its left with 17 mts more which it should cover in 5 leaps e 12 mts scaled

16+5 -21 leaps till now

we are still left with 5 mts ie 2 more leaps

No durga , 48-16 = 32 firstly.durga35?

normally the frog can scale 48mts in 16 leaps

but since it misses 1 mt in each leap total no of mts scaled in 16 leaps is 48-16 = 33

it has now 2 more mts to leap.. which implies 1 leap to cover 2 mts + 1 leap to cover the slipped 1 mts

so total = 35

after 16 leaps it is at 32nd fet itself not at 48th so it cant get out , so it need more 18 feets to jump go it??

i have small doubt and i anticipated question like this ..

The sum of squares of ages of children = square of the mans age.

Considering this , as per the question the ages of children are in AP (Arithmetic Progression ) since common interval is given the diff is considered as d.

so the childs age will be a-4d , a -3d , ---- a , --- ,a+4d

Solving with the other condition as the sum of squares of all these numbers = x^2.

we get the solution as 2 ,5 ,8 ,11,14 ,17 ,20,23 and 26 and the mans age is 48.

PS..how come one man with 9 children 馃槈.

Sorry to make you go to a big approach 馃榾

Here is the easier approach 馃榾

Consider HAT as one digit say 'a'

BOX as one digit say 'b'

Since these two digits are there in 2 calculations ,

then the equation turns out as

9(1000a+b) = 4(1000b+a)

8996a = 3991b

692a = 307b

So by this we get a=307 and b=692

So 9 * 307692 = 4* 692307 =2769228
