### Playing Cards Logical Riddle

Playing Cards Logical Riddle - 14 November

Let us do a fun activity. Take three piles of cards - one with 11 cards, second with 7 cards and the third with 6 cards and place them on a table.

The challenge is to move cards in a manner that each pile has 8 cards by the time you are done.

The rules are:
1) You can add to any pile but you must add exactly the amount of cards the pile already has. Suppose that a pile has 7 cards, then you will have to move exactly 7 cards from another pile to keep above it.

2) All cards should be taken from the same pile at one time.

3) You have only 3 moves.

1. step 1 :- 7 cards from deck of 11 to 7
now the decks are of 4,6 & 14
step 2 :- 6 cards from deck of 14 to 6
now the decks are of 4,12 & 8
step 3 :- 4 cards from deck of 12 to 4
now the decks are of 8,8 & 8

2. First stack of cards = 11
Second stack of cards = 7
Third stack of cards = 6

First move:
First stack of cards = 11 - 7 = 4
Second stack of cards = 7 + 7 = 14
Third stack of cards = 6

Second move:
First stack of cards = 4
Second stack of cards = 14 - 6 = 8
Third stack of cards = 6 + 6 = 12

Third Move:
First stack of cards = 4 + 4 = 8
Second stack of cards = 8
Third stack of cards = 12 - 4 = 8

3. First stack of cards = 11
Second stack of cards = 7
Third stack of cards = 6

First move:
First stack of cards = 11 - 7 = 4
Second stack of cards = 7 + 7 = 14
Third stack of cards = 6

Second move:
First stack of cards = 4
Second stack of cards = 14 - 6 = 8
Third stack of cards = 6 + 6 = 12

Third Move:
First stack of cards = 4 + 4 = 8
Second stack of cards = 8
Third stack of cards = 12 - 4 = 8
