How?

The letter in the box is the nth alphabet where n is the sum of other three numbers.

There is a peculiar two digit number which is three times the sum of its digits.

**Can you find the number?**

Lets say the number is ab

ab = 3(a+b) We can also write it as 10a + b = 3*(a+b) 7a = 2b a/b = 2/7

As it is given that it is a two digit number, so it can only be 27.

A boy has few toffees with him, then comes one of his friend and they decide to share them equally and they are able to divide them without any toffee remaining. Then one more friend comes and they divide the toffees in 3 equal parts, then one more friend comes, they are still able to divide the toffees in 4 equal parts, then comes one more friend, they are still able to divide them equally, similarly they are able to divide it equally in 5 and 6 equal parts but not when they are 7 and decide to divide equally they are left with one extra toffee.

**Can you tell the minimum number of toffees boy had initially ?**

Since, They are able to divide the toffees equally between 2,3,4,5 and 6 boys so the number of toffees must be a multiple of all of these.

To get the minimum number we should first get the Least Common Multiple of 2,3,4,5 and 5, i.e. 2^^{2}.3^^{1}.5^^{1} = 60.

Now lets divide it by 7, the remainder is = 4, so it cant be the answer, So we should try the next possible answer i.e. 120, divide it by 7, remainder = 1, so minimum number of toffees boy can have is 120.

There is a 9 digit number. No digit are repeated and rightmost digit is divisible by 1 and right 2 digits is divisible by 2, right 3 digits is divisible by 3 and so on, finally the whole number is divisible by 9.

**Can you find out the number?**

As the right two digits are divisible by 2, so rightmost digit should be even, at the same time right 5 digits are divisible by 5 so the rightmost digit can be 5 or 0, but as it should be even so it can only be 0.

Now, Right 4 digits are divisible by 4, so the rightmost two digits can be either 20, 40, 80 or 60.

To be divisible by 9 the digits of a number must sum to a multiple of 9. Adding the 10 digits together (0+1+2+…+8+9) gives 45 which is div by 9. However, this is a 9-digit number so we have to drop one from the ten. We can only take out 0 or 9 and still have the remaining digits sum to a multiple of 9. We’ve already shown that 0 is present so the 9 is dropped.

Right 3 digits are divisible by 3 so these 3 digits can be 120, 420, 720, 240, 540, 840, 180, 480, 780, 360.

Now to be divisible by 6 sum of the six digits should be divisible by 3 and it should also be even, which it is.

There is no rule for divisible by 7 so we just have to take digits such that they are divisible by 7, there can be many such numbers and one such number is 123567480.

Three friends A, B and C went on a trip.

A didn’t carry any food with him but had 13 Coins. B had 6 sandwiches, and C had 7 sandwiches with him (Total 13 Sandwiches).

They decided to share the food equally and in return A would give away all 13 coins to B & C.

**How should B & C distribute the money?**

Since they have to share the sandwiches equally, each of them will get 13/3 sandwiches.

Hence the sandwiched contributed by B and C to A.

B: 6 – 13/3 = 5/3

C:7 -13/3 = 8/3

Now A should give the money in the ratio of what he got from B and C, i.e.

5/3:8/3 :: 5:8

Hence B will get 5 and C will get 8 coins.

Answer is 54.

Answer is 17.

**How?**

Number outside the circle is sum of the numbers along the line(opposite to the number). thus missing number is 9+8 = 17.

**How?**

Star + Ball + Star – Ball = 9 + 3

2*Start = 12;

Star = 6;

Ball = 9-6 = 3;

Ball * Star = 3*6 = 18.

**How?**

Answer is in this format : <last digit><sum of all digits>

**thus answer to this number puzzle will be 79.**
