Above, in the first row there is 'one' 3, 'one' 1, 'two' 2's and 'two' 1's. That's what is written in the next row, in digits. This rule applies for all the rows from top to bottom.

nice!! i like your explantion you are the only one whos explantion was understandable!! thanks!!!

DeleteTOO HARD

DeleteThe problem never said what numbers we could/couldn't use. So, there is more than one way to solve this problem.

Delete6, 4, 2, 1, 0, 0

9, 4, 4, 1, 1, 1, 1, 0.

If you look at the sum of the numbers from left to right, then up and down.

!!Puzzle!!

1|=1

1|1=2

2|1=3

1|2|1|1=5

1|1|1|2|2|1=8

?|?|?|?|?|?=?

?|?|?|?|?|?|?|?=?

!!Sums!!

0+1=1

1+2=3

2+3=5

3+5=8

5+8=13

8+13=21.

the sum of the numbers and down, equals the sum of the numbers left to right.

Our answer (in puzzle)

1|=1

1|1=2

2|1=3

1|2|1|1=5

1|1|1|2|2|1=8

6|4|2|1|0|0=13

9|4|4|1|1|1|1|0=21

your explanation was quite understandable than what the author says

DeleteWell, while the sums thing makes sense, the problem itself is about a pattern that you read out in your head without realizing it. For example if you see the numeral 1 your brain tells you that you see one numeral 1.

DeleteThe pattern left off with 3 ones 2 twos and 1 one. Thus: 3 1 2 2 1 1. Which does not equal 13, but 10. The reason this pattern riddle leaves off the way it does is so it can mislead you to believe it is all about sums.

Reason:

1-->1 1

gives u the number of 1s in the previous number attached before the number

1 1-->2 1

has 2 1's

2 1-->1 2 1 1

has frequency of 2 as 1 and frequency of 1 as 1(frequency is attached before the number)

1 2 1 1-->1 1 1 2 2 1 --->3 1 2 2 1 1--->1 3 1 1 2 2 2 1

nice explanation anshul. Even the Main question explanation is so weird.

2 1 2 1 1 1 1 2 1 1

1 2 1 1 1 2 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 2 2 1

the bottom digit shows the number of digits in the same column for the above two rows..e.g

the last row first column first digit shows that there are one number of 2's in the first column for the last two rows do not including the last row...

the answer for line 5 is incorrest

ReplyDelete312211 and 13112221 It's counting the digits......... first number is 1..... only one 1 is there..... Next will be 11...... In 11, two "1"s are coming continuously, so next will be 21...... In 21, one '2' and one '1' is there..... Next will be 1211...... Here one "1" is there, one '2' is there..... and two "1"s are coming continuously...... Next will be 111221..... and so on............

very old one, taught in every math class (1st term university)

ReplyDeletethe following row always tells how many numbers of each type you see in the row before.

If I, e.g., had a row of 5 4 4 4 11 3 2 2 2 2, the next row would be:

one 5, three 4s, one 11, one 3, four 2s

This is the game that my Parents and Cousins would play, when they are drinking (Sometimes), when someone makes a mistake, they all laugh when its not funny!
