You are given 12 balls. All of them are of equal weight except one. One ball is either lighter or heavier than the others, you don't know which. You are given the task of finding this ball. You are given a scale to help you in your task but you may only use it 3 times.

How are you supposed to find the ball that has a different weight than the others?


It took me a few days to get it, and an hour or so to write it out, but here's my solution.

Haha. I had to search my own posts with 'balls' as a keyword to find my old post again. Wow. That was from five years ago. Time sure does fly. I did a quick check in that part to see if my riddle was solved. That doesn't seem to be the case.

I had forgotten the solution to the riddle myself so I decided to work it out again. Happy to say I managed to solve it so I can compare my solution with yours. Reading up on it, all I can say is... Your solution is complicated :rolleyes: At least, it is definitely different from mine. I'll post my solution later and you can check that too.

After spending a longer than anticipated time understanding your solution with a pen and paper, I can confidently say that you are correct ^^ Thanks for solving a 5 year old post.

hugs

There are 25 race horses that each run at different speeds. You can only race 5 horses at a time, but you have no stopwatch or any way to time them. However, you know that all the horses always run at constant speeds. (i.e. The fastest horse will always be the fastest in every race.)

What is the minimum number of races you need to determine the fastest 3 horses?

Sample way of determining the fastest 3 horses (but not necessarily the optimal way):
