At last will remain only one goat

ReplyDeleteCorrect.

Delete1 goat 9 lions

ReplyDelete1 goat 9 tigers

DeleteSingle goat remains

ReplyDeleteLogic:

ReplyDelete1 goat, 0 tiger

logically it is 1 goat and no tigers

ReplyDeletebut commonly all tigers will attack one goat at a time and eat it combine we will remain 10 goats

answer is one goat.

ReplyDeleteIn starting we have

10Tiger , 1Goat

if one tiger will be eat that goat then tiger will be converted into goat at the same time

1Tiger-> eat -> 1Goat --> Goat

Now 9 Tigers remaining.

9Tiger, 1 Goat

1Tiger-> eat -> 1Goat --> Goat

it will eaten by another tiger. it will be also converted in goat.

Now 8 Tigers remaining.

so this process will be continue until the last tiger.

one goat

ReplyDeleteone goat

ReplyDelete10 goats

ReplyDeletetiger>eat>goat>eaten by tiger>goat>......................

Deletesolution: lets 1 to 10 are the tigers and "A" is a goat

ReplyDeletetiger 1 eaten the goat 'A" then there is 9 tigers and one goat.

if it continue this process finally 1 goat will left

one goat,zero tiger

ReplyDelete1 goat ..

ReplyDeleteThe question actually left out an important part. It should also be stated in the question that the tigers do not want to get eaten by the other tigers, and so if eating the goat and turning into a goat will get a tiger eaten subsequently, then he will not eat the goat. Phrased differently, it could be said that the tigers' priorities are:

ReplyDelete1. stay alive

2. eat the goat

With this new information, the answer is that no tigers will eat the goat, and there will be 10 tigers and one goat left. The question would have been better if there were only 9 tigers. In that case, one tiger would eat the goat, but the others would not, resulting in 8 tigers and one goat.

I think only 1 goat will be left.

ReplyDeleteBrief Explanation:

After all the eating, the last tiger that ate the Goat that was bewitched by Magic Turned into a Goat

Now is there a possibility of 2 or more tigers Eating one Goat at a Time??? If so there should be a call for probability.

Thanks

you guys are idoits its 9 tigers and 1 goat bc its says the tigers are RATIONAL. once they witness the first tiger eat a goat and turn into one then they will not eat that goat bc rationally in this "magical world" they wud turn into one and subsequently get eaten.

ReplyDeleteIf you look at the solution, it says sheep at one point. Just a random thought. LOL!
