Half Full Or Half Empty Riddle

Half Full Or Half Empty Riddle
Half Full Or Half Empty Riddle - 28 March

There is a barrel with no lid and some wine in it. 'This barrel of wine is more than half full,' said Curly. 'No it's not,' says Mo. 'It's less than half full.' Without any measuring implements and without removing any wine from the barrel, how can they easily determine who is correct?

  3. Tilt the barrel until the wine barely touches the lip of the barrel. If the bottom of the barrel is visible then it is less than half full. If the barrel bottom is still completly coverd by the wine, then it is more than half full.

  4. if barrel hasnt symmetrical shape as the graphic shows, put exactly same amount of wine in another identical barrel and pour it to our barrel. if any wine spills from our barrel, it had more than half amount of wine.

    so, admin; your answer doesnt seem legal as mine.

  5. 1. Mark wine's level
    2. close of barrel top by hand
    3. turn a barrel to 180% (from top to down)
    4. check the wine's level
    if wine's level is lower then mark it is a more than half full
