Re: Riddles with a Prize, by Mantus Anchors

The key to this is the viewers angle to the two objects.

Object 1 and Object 2 are traveling on parallel courses. Viewer is either watching them go away or towards them so that the appear as point objects. Think of standing in the middle of a road and watch two cars slowly drive away from you. The distance that they are from each other never changes relative to your view point.

If you liked my advice/response, give me some rep points. If you didn't......well what do you expect, it was free.

Re: Riddles with a Prize, by Mantus Anchors

Ok Sailnetters! This one is for a 8 lbs Mantus Anchor as a prize.... Dinghy anchor...
By the way sorry I am late,,, but we had a problem with the surface finish of our hooks and have been busy refinishing the hooks and taking care of customers......

A sculptor named White, a violinist named Black, and an artist named Red meet in a cafe. One of the three says: " I have black hair, and you two have red hair and white hair, respectively, but none of us has a hair color that matches his name." White responds: "you are correct" What color is the artist's hair?

Re: Riddles with a Prize, by Mantus Anchors

The artist has black hair.

White replies so he is not speaking, either Red or Black is speaking. Since the hair color does not match the name, Red must be speaking and is either white or black. White is either red or black haired. Black is white or red haired. White knows his own hair color, which can't be white; the speaker can't be Black since Black cannot have black hair, so it must be Red, the artist, with black hair.

Black

none of us have a hair color that matches out name, this means that Black is not speaking.

White responds, so that means White is not speaking. which leaves Red as the speaker, and he declared that he has black hair.

Re: Riddles with a Prize, by Mantus Anchors

Given: none of us has a hair color that matches his name
The statement: "I have black hair" cannot have been made by Mr. Black.
Since the reply by Mr. White of "you are correct" implies that he did not make the defining statement, nor did Mr. Black. So the artist Mr. Red made the statement: "I have black hair".
Given that Mr. Red has black hair there are only 2 remaining hair colors to be assigned to this colorful trio: red and white hair. Since Mr. White cannot have white hair, his hair color must be red leaving Mr. Black with white hair.

edit to add: Damn! Not quick enough!
