Card puzzle answer



3 of heart ?

Mod 10 (total of three highest point card in a row) = lowest point card. Consider Ace is one point.

Meanwhile, just to inform that I am a "serious" Baccarat player ! LOL

If Q is consider 12 points, then the better answer is Q of heart.


I'm not sure of your logic, but your answer is...

Correct!

This is one of the toughest of this type of puzzle I've ever seen.

The pattern is the fourth card in a row is equal to the average of the first three cards and each suit must be represented.


Marriage is like a deck of cards. In the beginning all you need is two hearts and a diamond. By the end you wish you had a club and spade.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

1st row : Mod 10( 7+10+7)= 4 = lowest point card of the row

2nd row : Mod 10( 10+8+8)= 6 = lowest point card of the row

3rd row : Mod 10( 2+6+x)= 1 = lowest point card of the row

x = 3

There are three card with same suit, the missing suit is HEART, so answer is 3 of heart.

Let's dial it down a few notches. Relax. Have a beer. Go bowling...



Which pins do you have to knock over to get a total of 100 points?

If I knocked over the 39, the 48, and the 13, I would get exactly 100. It would take a heck of a shot to pick this up and not knock over any other pins, but not impossible. Besides, it looks like I took out the 1-2-3 pins without knocking any of the other ones down on my first shot, so there shouldn't be a problem converting the 5-7-9 on my second, right?

Correct!

Eh? Bowling was too easy? Well, try some archery...

At an archery tournament, the winner scored exactly one hundred points.The scores on the target are: 16, 17, 23, 24, 39 and 40.Can you figure out how many arrows the winner must have used to accomplish the feat?

Six - two 16s and four 17s

Mod 8, the values are 0, 1, 7, 0, 7, 0, and the sum mod 8 = 4
A solution of 4 arrows would be four 1s or four 7s
4 x 17 = 68
4 x 23 = 92
Replacing any 23 with a 39 makes it more than 100
Therefore, there is no 4-arrow solution

A solution of 5 arrows would be a zero and four 1s, or a zero and four 7s
4 x 17 + 16 = 84
4 x 17 + 24 = 92
4 x 17 + 40 = 108
The smallest sum of four 7s and a zero is 4 x 23 + 16 = 108
Therefore, there is no 5-arrow solution either

The smallest solution with seven or more arrows is 7 x 16 = 112, so any solution must be 6 arrows

Letís say youíre betting on a coin flip and you get paid $300 if you call it correctly on the first toss, $150 if you call it on the second toss, $100 for the third, $75 for the fourth, and so on. The game ends when you call a toss correctly.

This game costs $250 to play. Whatís the house edge ?

I need more info about the "and so on", as the payments don't follow a progression. If the game were to end after the 4th toss, I get a house edge of 29.6875%.
